Subject: What generation are you?

Written By: Guest on 11/18/04 at 2:29 pm

Baby Boomers: 1943 - 1960/Prophet This is the genration that came of age in the '60s and '70s during the Kennedy assassination, Civil Rights movement, Vietnam War, hippies, "Summer of Love", Moon landing, Woodstock, Days of Rage on college campuses, and Watergate.  Are generally desribed as idealistic, lovers of individual freedom who are inner driven and moralistic about worldly affairs.  My parents are both second wave Boomers.

Generation X: 1961 - 1981/Nomad The post-Boomer generation that came of age in the '80s and '90s with the Reagan era, Challenger explosion, fall of Berlin Wall, Persian Gulf War, economic recession, and grunge rock.  Are generally described as individualistic, cynical of world affairs, alienated from Boomer culture, and often negatively stereotyped as "slackers" (i.e. Beavis and Butthead, Beck's "Loser").  My sister is a mid wave Gen Xer.

Generation Y: 1982 - 2003/Hero Otherwise known as the Millennial Generation or "Echo-Boomers" for being mostly the Boomers' kids.  Is coming of age now in the new millennium with Election 2000, 9-11 terrorist attacks, War on Terror, and Iraq War.  Are generally described as optimistic, teamplayers among peers, less inclined to enage in promiscous sexual activity than their Boomer and Gen Xer elders and more likely to put off sex until marriage or wait for someone "special".  Often stereotyped as South Park idiots or wholesome pre-teen lovers of boy bands and pop princesses.  I myself am a first wave Gen Yer but don't know if I fit the collective personality I just described.

Generation Z: 2004 - 2025/Artist The generation being born now, mostly the Gen Xers' kids.  Are expected to be much like the Silent Generation that is now in old age in character and personality.  will come of age in the decades of the 2020s and 2030s and will grow up in a volitile environment of terror threats, possible nuclear or biological attacks in America that will scar them the same way Silent children were scarred by Great Depression, WWII, and later the nuclear threat of the Cold War.  My kids will most likely belong to this generation if I ever have any.

Generation X; though I must tell you that this Generation ends at 1977 as a birth year. I was born in 1976 and have absolutely nothing in common with those born in the 80s. Sorry.

generation x. i always thought the baby boomer generation started after WW2 and ended in '65. gen xers came about from '66 to '75. to qualify as a gen xer, you had to have been a teenager in the 80s. i always read something different.

Good question, it does sound confusing. Since I was born in 1976, I would say Generation X, since I was a teenage during the 90's I would say Generation Y. Like I said before, sounds confusing.

I was born in 1960....I remember the Beatles very well from age 5 as I had to older sisters constantly playing them :) I loved the 70's and even part of the 80's. I stopped buying records in 1990, though I still burn some new stuff once in a while. I'd redefine my generation as 1963-1979

I was under the impression that Douglas Coupland was responsible for using the term in regards to an age-bracket in his novel Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, this came out in, I believe 1991 (or so). 

Billy Idol was using the same term in the late 70's with his band, however he said he got the name of the group from a 1960's paperback book about mods and rockers in the UK, although no one has been able to locate this book...

There were zillions of pulp paperbacks for newsstands and drugstores back then.  It doesn't surprise me that no one's been able to locate a copy.  They were quite ephemeral.  Then again, Idol might be misrembering.  It could have been just a magazine article or something.

Yup-I'm one of the last too. All my life I have always gotten along better with older people-then I figured out why-I am part of their generation. Hubby used to claim that I wasn't a Baby Boomer until I PROVED that I was. All my siblings (born between 51-60) are Baby Boomers and I asked him, "Aren't I in the same generation as my siblings?" He couldn't argue with that.  ;D

I was born in 1961 and there is NO WAY I regard myself as being Generation X, or anything resembling it....  :o

Not that I am implying there is anything wrong with Gen X, I just always regarded myself as a Baby Boomer.  Gen X is a term I have always associated with technology, and I remember seeing precious little of that until the mid 70's

Beats me.  I'm not a demographic guy.  And people don't even follow United States (you have people in France calling themselves Gen X or Gen Y) birth rates or anything like that anymore, this seems to have transcended itself and is defined mostly by pop cultural issues first and foremost, with political and world events after that.  There is one thing though.  Gen Y is a different generation from Xers, but they really are not a "full generation away" from Gen X the way we were from the Baby Boomers.  My parents are traditional aged Baby Boomers.  Most Boomers with the exception of the really young ones born in the early 60s are old enough to be my parents too.  When I think "Baby Boomer" I immediately start thinking of my parents generation.  

But I'm not old enough to be the father of most of these Gen Y kids.  Some of the older Gen Xers obviously would be, but most of us born in the '70s weren't old enough to be these kids parents.  Well maybey biologicaly a few of them, if I started having kids in middle school back in the late 80s.  Or mabyey when I was in high school in the early 1990s.  But still, I'd be a super young dad to them at age 29.

Not necessarily true. I'm a Gen Xer (1976) and the mother of a soon to be six year old son (this Thursday). By definition, he's late Gen Y (1998), though I thought it would be after that one. I was 22 when he was born.

Baby Boomers: 1943 - 1960


The reason Baby Boomer generation begins in 1943 is because that is 9 months to a year after the first waves of troops began returning to the States after being deployed overseas for WWII.

Quite literally the last Baby Boomers were born on May 6, 1946.  Nine months after VJ Day. ;)

Gen X 1965-1980
Gen Y 1981-1994
Gen Z 1995-2009
Gen Alpha 2010-now

Some may not like these definitions but to me they're the most clean, concise, and simple. Cultural generations do NOT "have" to be 15-20 years long; that's PHYSICAL generations. There's a difference. Cultural gens can be as long/short as they need to depending on the shifts in technology/culture throughout the years.

The generations thing usually confuses me as I find a lot of the things used to define where a gen ends and begins to be a bit arbitrary and inaccurate at times.

It's true, pretty much any statistic confirms it. Least amount of drug abuse, teen pregnancies, petty crimes, violent crimes, highest university acceptance rates, the list goes on.


I'm talking about teen culture, not some statistics. It pretty much sucks because it doesn't have a role for me. It has the least amount of rock hits, and it's mostly populated with godawful trap rap "songs". Not to mention that you probably need to have a smartphone in order to be cool. I know that teens are like rebels, but I just couldn't stand the facts. My smartphone isn't that addictive, since I only use it to watch YouTube videos and post on various message boards. That's f*cking it. I don't want people to know what I do in real life, since it's unnecessary.

TL;DR I don't find this decade's culture to be cool.

Saying something sucks and not letting nostalgia bias influence your opinion is fine. What I get pissy about is when people talk about how they loved an era just due to it being old. While when that era was still current they were too busy complaining about how it's not like the older time periods. Then we'd be seeing thousands of stupid memes or facebook posts about how modern day sucks and the old period (that they used to hate when it was the current era) is the last golden age or whatever.

Yeah, that sh!t's stupid. Some kid said to me on YouTube "omg 2006 is the last good year everything 2007 onward sucks ashually" and I educated him. I though the real 00's sucked while living them and I still hold that opinion to this day. I can't feel nostalgic for Fall Out Boy, Hawthorne Heights or MySpace. Only the memories from the time I am nostalgia for, not the pop culture. I love 2000/2001/2002 (I like 2003) and cherish those days but I hate the rest of that decade and I can't see 2004-2006 ever being the last golden age.

The 2010's are probably better than the real 00's by a small margin. 0.5 maybe. If a wizard came up to me and said "Jordan, you can go back in time but only to 2005 or you can decline and stay in the present" then I'd stay here because living in the present is better than living in some sh!tty dark age past.

No, the spirit of 1998 only lasted through 1999 to 2002. 2003 was us getting out of our 1998 and moving towards our 2004 chairs to which we sit in today. There have been on cultural changes since 2004. '04 to infinity.

In the 2010's maybe but it wasn't like this in the 90's and early 00's. I suggest you visit the area and experience it's first hand before judging, though. If you don't like it after that, fair enough, but you don't really know a place until you've been there yourself.

From my point of view, it really depends on the area, since San Jose is huge. I live near the border between San Jose and Cupertino. So it gets duller as I get closer to Cupertino. San Jose itself, is pretty cool in general. Nice scenery, good restaurants, downtown is pretty cool (save for a few shady areas), decent public transportation. Though like Jordan said, San Jose was a lot better back in the day, with less crime and of course, less hipsters (if any at all).

For the longest time it's been nice, clean, good climate and there's lots of stuff to do but I dunno what's happened in the past few years with crime and everything. It's still a great place to live (and it's no Oakland, which I think has the highest crime in Norcal) but it doesn't have the reputation it once had. I dunno what the hell is up. For the rest of the world, it seems crime is going down but for San Jose it's just going up and up! That pisses me off. All the Skate Parks and record stores are filled with hipsters on a bad day. Stop by Mayfair or Streetlight and some undercut doofus is always taking up space doing literally nothing! Back in the day (1996-2003), it was enthusiastic bleach haired kids who wanted to skate and listen to records. This is Norcal, home of Green Day, for god sakes! Nowadays, everyone is too cool to have fun. There is a place in Berkley called 924 Gilman; it's a Punk club that's been open since 1986 and it used to be really cool. My first shows were at that place in the mid 90's and it ruled. Nowadays, it's dorks with thick rims standing around for their "cred".

Some people will argue that Album 7 belongs in Era A and not Era B because it's stylistically closer to Era A than Era B, despite the "pop sellout" and ballad influences of Era B creeping in ever so slowly. Other people will argue that Album 7 belongs in Era B as opposed to Era A because there are no 20-minute long prog rock epics, and Album 7 had the band's first ever #1 single "I Luv You" which disgusted many longtime fans blah blah blah ;D

I can't agree more. I can understand the reasons behind generations, but the fact that a lot of the things used to define a generation aren't very accurate. It's impossible to try and come up with something accurate that can define millions of people yet people try to anyways.  ::)

As mentioned tons of times before I consider a lot of reasons behind cut off dates to be arbitrary.

To me, generations are dumb because finding a definitive "cut off" year is nigh impossible.

It's like people who try to split up the eras of a musician or band.

2000-2002 Good Charlotte disagrees so they wrote a Pop Punk-Rap about how Washington's mayor smoked crack first. Drake isn't even a real street rapper so he should take notes from Zebrahead, Sum 41 or even The Starting Line (who are infinitely more street/hair bleach than Drake).

Now to be honest I really enjoy both of the rappers and think all of them are equally great, I can't really choose between the two, but nobody can say Drake is a terrible rapper though, that's just absurd in my book. He's come up with some legendary lyrics, beats and instrumentals that get stuck in your head since 2009-present. Whether it's his song or he's featured in it.

So did the Beastie Boys. They brought Hip Hop to new levels with Check Your Head by playing their own instruments. Many producers look at Paul's Boutique as the album that revolutionized sampling and brought it to new heights. Run-DMC >> Everything else, of course, I will not deny that but the Beasties are incredibly important to da hip hop hiztory.


His work from Infinite to Eminem Show is his best but I don't think MML2 is that bad. When he started being less Slim Shady is when he started to suck but he at least tries to bring Slim Shady back in MML2.


Yeah, but he doesn't do that good a job. Slim Shady's prime was 1997-2003 and this comeback feels weak compared to that. Where's the Shady theme, too? We had What's My Name, Real Slim Shady and Without Me but on MMLP2 we got nothing.

They're kinda already doing that. I've read articles on them and have their own characteristics. For example, many seem to be queer (or pansexual), entrepreneurs, and on less known social networks. In addition, we even know they are willing to change the world and put judgements to rest. Right now, there are a few celebrities in that generation who are making names for them.

I actually kinda agree with this.

When people say Y/Z cusp, they don't mean literally, they mean that their lives growing up are in the transition from Y to Z. If there's an immediate cutoff for Y and an immediate start for Z, then what happens is that people start getting into arguments and they're like "we're only one year apart so why can't we be part of the same generation"? So there has to be a cutoff or a transition period eventually. As a 1996 born can't consider myself as completely Y and I can't consider myself as completely Z either. Whether we want to admit it or not, a lot of sources or demographics always consider us as apart of the Z or homelanders generation, but many others consider us as the tail end of millennials or Y too. In other words I'm too young for many Y stereotypes but at the same time I'm too old for many Z stereotypes. I do relate to some Y and Z stereotypes though, but it's an even mixture of both. Slim, you could even say that it felt like we had a Y childhood but since our teenage years up to present it feels like we're apart of Z with all the technology and internet on all platforms that's taken over our culture. When it comes to the eras of pop culture when it shifted over from Y to Z people have different opinions on that.

I always felt Gen Z actually, because I don't remember a time when computer weren't common. My dad bought our computer when I was 4. I don't claim ages 0-3 because those aren't my formative years. Now if we're talking about a time when computers weren't essential (1999/2000) I was only 7 years old, those years aren't very formative. Only when I start getting into my teen/young adult years do the similarities to Gen Y pop in, with the flip phones and the iPods and the Bush hating and the Obama loving LOL.  "Y/Z cusp" seems to define me accurately. I always felt I was the bridge between two eras. Maybe personal life experience goes into it as well. We're all datapoints on one large graph, and the point is to find the trendlines :D

For many years that was the case, but around 2012, most business, demographers, marketers, etc. started to "refine" the Gen Y definition from 1980-2000 to 1980-1994, with Gen Z being 1995-2009.

Generation X; though I must tell you that this Generation ends at 1977 as a birth year. I was born in 1976 and have absolutely nothing in common with those born in the 80s. Sorry.

Tanya


Uh, no. The final year of Generation X birth dates is 1981. And saying you "have absolutely nothing in common with those born in the 80s"? You were born in 1976. Someone born in 1980 and even 1981 is not going to be different from you. As a matter of fact, from my first hand experience, you guys are culturally part of the same era. You guys like the same music, clothes, tv shows, movies, etc. Aka, the 1990's. Four years isn't a generation gap at all.

Sports drinks like Powerade, Gatorade, or some of the sports drink powders that you mix with water are ok, especially after a hard workout, race, or game.

If you did heavy exercise for extended periods of time drinking only water you would drop dead earlier than if you drank Gatorade. You need more than water; when you sweat you lose the electrolytes I previously mentioned. If you run low on sodium, the nerves in your body don't activate as quickly and could possibly give up.

Yes, I can agree with this, although it's still really good to have after a workout. Now without a workout I can see where you're coming from. Gatorade or Powerade isn't mandatory of course. I agree that water is better without a workout. Half of the ingredients from Gatorade you could get by eating fruits like a Banana.

Water is still better after even the most heaviest exercise.... Water is all you need. You don't need the extra sugar in gatorade. It is much healthier to use water instead of gatorade for exercise..


It flushes your system.

Generation Y is everyone born up to the year 2000. Also known as "Millennials". Gen Z is anyone born after 2000. There's no such thing as Y/Z cusp.
This is something I don't actually see in articles or in research about this generation. The reason is that the analysts split the generations into two instead of 3.


I always felt Gen Z actually, because I don't remember a time when computer weren't common. My dad bought our computer when I was 4. I don't claim ages 0-3 because those aren't my formative years. Now if we're talking about a time when computers weren't essential (1999/2000) I was only 7 years old, those years aren't very formative. Only when I start getting into my teen/young adult years do the similarities to Gen Y pop in, with the flip phones and the iPods and the Bush hating and the Obama loving LOL.  "Y/Z cusp" seems to define me accurately. I always felt I was the bridge between two eras. Maybe personal life experience goes into it as well. We're all datapoints on one large graph, and the point is to find the trendlines :D
It's more than just PCs being common. You have to also look at characteristics, education, events etc. Then, you can see what generation you're part of. 


For many years that was the case, but around 2012, most business, demographers, marketers, etc. started to "refine" the Gen Y definition from 1980-2000 to 1980-1994, with Gen Z being 1995-2009.
Actually, the 1980-94 group was used long before. There are many old articles and discussions regarding that cohort.


I just say I'm Late Y(Millennial)... not any y/z bullsheesh!
Honestly, there isn't really 3 cohorts within each generation. There are only two which consists of older and younger.

Even though I probably won't be the targeted demographic anymore (though I'll still be in my 20s  :D), I'm hoping the late 2010s and early 2020s has a much richer culture, that has more substance than the current era. I'm also hoping there's a stronger sense of individualism in the future. The 2010s (especially 2013-2016) seem to be very collectivist.

2008 & 2009 were both huge transition years from 2000's to 2010's culture. I agree that 2008 & 2009 were more transitional than 2003, but that doesn't mean 2003 wasn't a transitional year though. 2003 was still the transition year from early 2000's to core 2000's culture. While the transition was complete by the start of 2004 which marked the beginning of mid 2000's culture. I'd say that 2001, 2003, 2008, and 2009 were the most transitional years of the 2000's decade, this is going by how the culture was in the U.S. by the way.

I think we are at the end because most Millennials are over the age of the target audience, so pop culture is now beginning to focus more on the Plural generation. I say by late next year or 2018, the Millennial culture will be over as all of them will be finished with HS and then 1/3 of them will be in college thus making the Plural pop culture in full force.

No, you can't pair the 2000's with the 2010's. Both decades are very different. It's like pairing the 1980's with the 1990's when you said that.

No way, there is very little difference between the 2000s and 2010's on a relative scale... Certainly nowhere near the difference between the 90s and 80s or any other pair of decades we have had recently. You can list a lot of cultural differences and technological differences between the 2000s and 2010's, so can I, but relatively speaking, the 2000s and 2010's are very similar decades to each other. Maybe that will change later on this decade. Everyone tries to find differences which there are, but there are very few differences when you're comparing it to other decades. I'm not gonna go too deep into this because it is bordering decadology territory.

When you look at the scale of all decades, you will see they are not as different as you think. 80s - No internet, 90s - slow internet no social media, 2000s fast internet with social media, mobile phones. 2010's - fast internet with advanced social media, advanced mobile phones. See my point?

You must look at it objectively in the span of all decades. There are a lot differences of course.I'm not saying there aren't. But they are still similar when you look at the big picture. 2006 and 2016 are very similar to each other on a 50 year scale...

If I'm not mistaken, I remember him saying he was born in December 1996, which would make him late 90's because he's really 19 for most of this year along with the first half of 1997 born's, while I'm 20 for most of this year along with the first half of 1996 born's and the second half of 1995 born's including yourself.

As mentioned before, some people divide decades in halves instead of thirds: xxx0-xxx5 is the "early" part of that decade, while xxx6-xx9 is the "late" part of that decade.

It should be noted that while this method is popular among some people, it's technically mathematically incorrect. xxx0-xxx4 would be the first half of the decade, while xxx5-xxx9 should be the second half.

In fact, before ocarinafan left, I notice there are a lot of us on this site who graduated HS in 2014 or were born in 1995 or 1996. Anyways, January 1, XXX0 - April 30, XXX3 is the early part of a decade, May 1, XXX3 - August 31, XXX6 is the mid part of a decade, and September 1, XXX6 - December 31, XXX9 is the late part of a decade.

Time for some unneeded math.

10 years in a decade. 12 months in a year.
10 x 12  = 120
Early/Mid/Late is 3 parts
120/3 = 40

Early '90s = Janurary 1990 - April 1993 (First 40 months)
Mid '90s = May 1993 - August 1996 (Second 40 months)
Late '90s = September 1996 - December 1999 (Third 40 months)

First 40 months is early
Second 40 months is mid
third 40 months is late
After the 3rd 40 months the decade ends

Although I think I messed up in my math somewhere. Oh well.

Dec '96 is late '90s numerically as it exists within the 3rd set of 40 months within the decade.

Well that's very inaccurate and hardly anybody says that. That's the first 6 years of a decade vs. the last 4 years of a decade. You mean XXX0 - XXX4 is early while XXX5 - XXX9 is late? But that still doesn't make any sense and still hardly anybody goes by that. The majority of people say that XXX0 - XXX3 is the early part, XXX4 - XXX6 is the mid part, and XXX7 - XXX9 is late. In reality XXX3 could be early or mid and XXX6 could be mid or late. XXX0 - XXX2 will always be early, XXX4 & XXX5 will always be mid, and XXX7 - XXX9 will always be late. Some people take out the XXX0 and go by the "no such thing as zero in a decade rule" and say that XXX1 - XXX3 is early, XXX4 - XXX6 is mid, and XXX7 - XXX9 is late. What I said in my previous comment is the fact though.

The thing that I hate about this whole generation thing. For the longest of time it's been said that millennials are always using social media. And as of 2016 they're NOW saying that they're not always on social media. A problem with the whole generation thing is not only that it can be inaccurate, but the constant updating on defining characteristics on generations bugs me. For example how many different year spans for Gen millennial and plurals now? Heck by 2050 people will still be updating and changing definitions.

Well Millennials are still using social media, but they're not using all of them. If you see the ones about Millennials, a majority use FB the most often with Snapchat being the least. For Plurals, it's Snapchat the most with FB the least. All the others are in between; however, the age groups of Millennials have been divided into 3.

I've said it many times before, but anyone born from 1995-2000 could either be part of Generation Y (millennials) or Generation Z (homelanders) by demographics based off arbitrary opinions and theories. 1995-1997 leans towards Y, while 1998-2000 leans towards Z. 1995-2000 as a whole could be the transition from Y to Z, but aren't completely Y or completely Z based off demographics. 1994 is the last true Y since everybody agrees that 1994 is still part of Y, while 2001 is the first true Z since everybody agrees that 2001 is part of Z. When people say "Y/Z cusp" they mean in the transition period from Y to Z based off stereotypes, they're not trying to be literal. This is not my opinion, but these are facts based off what I've seen. I'm not the one who makes these decisions. So whatever generation you want to be apart of it's up to you or many other people to decide. Nobody can force to us to decide what generation we feel like we're apart of. Just stick with "Late Y" like you've always have.

I felt like I'm a Y/Z cusp, since my preschool years happened during the early 2000s, while my early elementary school years (K-2) happened during the mid 2000s. Despite having the 2006-07 school year being half mid '00s/half late '00s, I think the cultural late 2000s started in the spring of 2007. Possibly around March or April. Since that was when late 2006 vibes came off from the year.

If Popsugar says 1977-1983 (Gen X/Y cusp) is "the Oregon Trail generation", then 1994-2000 (Y/Z cusp) could be "the Runescape generation". ;D


More like "the Pokemon generation". Runescape was popular during the early 2000s, but barely anybody played it after the mid 2000s. Plus, the game was towards older kids and young teens. So, I suppose Runescape shouldn't be placed that way.

I've said it many times before, but anyone born from 1995-2000 could either be part of Generation Y (millennials) or Generation Z (homelanders) by demographics based off arbitrary opinions and theories. 1995-1997 leans towards Y, while 1998-2000 leans towards Z. 1995-2000 as a whole could be the transition from Y to Z, but aren't completely Y or completely Z based off demographics. 1994 is the last true Y since everybody agrees that 1994 is still part of Y, while 2001 is the first true Z since everybody agrees that 2001 is part of Z. When people say "Y/Z cusp" they mean in the transition period from Y to Z based off stereotypes, they're not trying to be literal. This is not my opinion, but these are facts based off what I've seen. I'm not the one who makes these decisions. So whatever generation you want to be apart of it's up to you or many other people to decide. Nobody can force to us to decide what generation we feel like we're apart of. Just stick with "Late Y" like you've always have.

Well... you have your opinion and I have mine; you are NOT going to change my mind!!


Also, I consider 94ers late Y just like me! Btw... I'm curious what do you consider to be solid late Y.

It's really hard to pinpoint whether I'm solid late Y or early Z. I'm not sure. To be honest in reality I'm in the transition from Y to Z but by heart I will always feel like a late millennial. I've kinda moved on from these generation discussions though. I need to give it a rest now since I've debated on this for too long. You can go archive my older posts on this thread.

I know it's off topic, but I think anyone born during Clinton's FIRST term can definitely call themselves late Yers.

I felt like I'm a Y/Z cusp, since my preschool years happened during the early 2000s, while my early elementary school years (K-2) happened during the mid 2000s. Despite having the 2006-07 school year being half mid '00s/half late '00s, I think the cultural late 2000s started in the spring of 2007. Possibly around March or April. Since that was when late 2006 vibes came off from the year.



If Popsugar says 1977-1983 (Gen X/Y cusp) is "the Oregon Trail generation", then 1994-2000 (Y/Z cusp) could be "the Runescape generation". ;D
I hope you guys know that there are actually two groups of the Millennials.  It's better to have older and younger as it's less confusing. 

1994-96 could be the youngest millennials while 1998-2000 could be the oldest Plurals. 1997 could swing both ways.

It's pretty hard to determine it... but I still say 1985ers and 1986ers are early Y but are kinda on the cusp of core. with 85ers leaning towards early and 86ers leaning towards core.  1987ers and 1988ers defiantly core.

I think your right, but, if you wanted to attempt to divide generations based entirely on presidential terms, you could do it like this:

Truman's First Term (1945-49): Early Boomers
Truman's Second Term (1949-53): Peak Boomers
Eisenhower's First Term (1953-57): Late Boomers
Eisenhower's Second Term (1957-61): Early Jonesers
Kennedy's Term/Johnson's First Term (1961-65): Late Jonesers
Johnson's Second Term (1965-69): Early Xers
Nixon's First Term (1969-73): Peak Xers
Nixon's Second Term/Ford's Term (1973-77): Late Xers
Carter's Term (1977-81): X/Y Cusp Generation
Reagan's First Term (1981-85): Early Yers
Reagan's Second Term (1985-89): Early Peak Yers
George H. W. Bush's Term (1989-93): Late Peak Yers
Clinton's First Term (1993-97): Late Yers
Clinton's Second Term (1997-2001): Y/Z Cusp Generation

It's gets more speculative after this because Gen Z is not fully defined yet, but...

George W. Bush's First Term (2001-05): Early Zers
George W. Bush's Second Term (2005-09): Early Peak Zers
Obama's First Term (2009-13): Later Peak Zers

This is a good concept as it shows which generation someone is in; however, I say it's better that generations are split into two groups because they are not monolithic.

What's so eye-openinly wrong with my Bush '41 perspective that you have to respond with puzzled emoticons? Grunge became really popular in late 1991, not to mention you had albums such as Blood Sugar Sex Magic and shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Seinfeld, and Golden Age Simpsons present during that time. As a whole, Bush '41's term is more core X, but there was still some late X. Core X was basically the era of Saved By the Bell, Roseanne's peak, Bill & Ted, Guns N' Roses, New Kids on the Block, Paula Abdul, and Full House.

At least we seem to agree with Clinton's first term.

Clinton's 2nd term: 1997-2001(X/Y)

This period was clearly early Y, even though there were still some X influences present during the first half. In 1997, you already had the Internet becoming a huge phenomenon, the death of the grunge movement, West Coast gangsta rap being relegated to secondary status, millennial teen pop bands like the Spice Girls and the Backstreet Boys blowing up, hip hop becoming much edgier and more materialistic, shows like King of the Hill, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Stargate SG-1, South Park, Seventh Heaven, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Ally McBeal becoming popular, Radiohead setting the new standard for art rock with OK Computer, and video games becoming more adult-oriented than ever before. The high school class of 1998 is pretty much the last that I consider more X than Y, so as a whole, there were more early millennials in high school during that period than late X, not to mention middle school would've been completely populated by Y'ers.

George W's first term: 2001-2005(Mainly Early Gen Y and a little core)

Mostly agreed here, though I think it leans more towards core than early.

George W's second term and Obama's first term:2005-2013(peak of GEN Y culture)
George W's 2nd term:2005-2009(mainly Core Gen Y)
Obama's first term:2009-2013(mainly Late Gen Y)


How is 2013 part of the peak of Gen-Y culture? By that point, a lot of television shows and music were targeting Z. It's much more of a transitional year, in my opinion.

Obama's second term: 2013-2017(Y/Z)

What from the mid-2000s is specifically targeting Y and not Z?

Truman's Second Term (1949-53): Peak Boomers
Eisenhower's First Term (1953-57): Late Boomers
Eisenhower's Second Term (1957-61): Early Jonesers

Clinton's First Term (1993-97): Late Yers
Clinton's Second Term (1997-2001): Y/Z Cusp Generation

It's gets more speculative after this because Gen Z is not fully defined yet, but...

IMO, and I'm only doing births PRE Gen Z.
Truman's first term(1945-1949); 1945 born are still silent gen but have some boomer in them, but overall mainly early Boomers.
Truman's second term(1949-1953) mainly core Boomers; the 1950-1953 ones to be exact.
Eisenhower's first term(1953-1957) mainly Late Boomers
Eisenhower's second term(1957-1961) Late Boomers/Gen Jones
JFK's term/LBJ's first term(1961-1965) Solid Gen Jonesers
LBJ's second term(1965-1969) Early Gen Xers
Nixon's first term(1969-1973) Mainly core Gen Xers;
Nixon's second term/Ford's term(1973-1977); Core/Late Gen X, 1973 and 1974ers are solid core xers while 75 and 76ers are on the cusp of core and late
Carter's term(1977-1981) VERY late X or x/y
Reagan's first term(1981-1985) Early Gen Y
Reagan's second term(1985-1989) Early/Core Gen Y; 1985 and 1986ers are on the cusp of ealy and core while 1987-1989 are legit.
Bush's term(1989-1993) Core Gen Y and some late Yers; 1989-1990 are legit core; while 1991 and 1992ers are con the cusp of core and late.
Clinton's first term(1993-1997)Plain Late Gen Yers

I think 1999 and 2000 are pretty much purely early Y. 1997 and 1998 are slightly more debatable, but there was certainly enough millennial culture coming in during that time that the second term as a whole is more early millennial than late X, not half-and-half.


Sigh....... I wasn't talking about 2013 in general, I was talking about VERY early 2013 before Obama got re inaugurated.

Sorry, it just seemed like you were framing 2013 as more of a Y year in general because you said Obama's second term was evenly split between Y and Z, implying then that the first year of that term was comfortably more Y. I personally think Z was just about emerging as the dominant generation by that year, even though late Y culture hadn't totally worn off quite yet, i.e., the Breaking Bad finale.

You meant to say mid 2010s ;D So you don't think ANYTHING's nowadays is targeting Y? :o ???


If it targets Generation Y, then it most likely also targets Generation Z at the same time. A vast bulk of the SJW's of today are millennials and not homelanders, but it just really doesn't seem like people born before the late 90s are the main target anymore.

I'm saying that we should divide each generation into two groups because three cohorts causes more confusion and come out uneven. In addition to that, it results in a older wave and a younger wave and it's a much better system. Every cohort within all generations are 10 years, not 6/7 (I calculated for Millennials specifically that 20÷3 = 6.67 which is basically two-thirds of each group and that won't work because one of the groups will come out missing a compartment).

So, most of us here would be the younger Millennials

That's not the case with all types of mainstream culture. When it comes to mainstream music you might have a point, but when it comes to TV shows, movies, and sports, all of that still clearly targets both millennials and early Z. I see tons of young adults using Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat too, not just teenagers.

In certain respects, yes. Beavis & Butthead and Seinfeld aired their last full seasons that year, and it was the last truly good year for The Simpsons, even though the signs of decline were just starting. A lot of pop songs were melodic ballads, like "All By Myself" and "Butterfly Kisses." Some albums, like En Vogue's EV3, Scarface's The Untouchable, and Coolio's My Soul, were still of a solidly mid-90s sound. Michael Jordan was still in his heyday. Although grunge was essentially dead, a lot of adolescents still listened to Gen-X targeted bands; both the high school classes of 1997 and 1998 are more X than Y, in my opinion.

However, you cannot underestimate the absolute onslaught of significant societal changes and new popular culture introduced from autumn 1996 through autumn 1997, many of these things surviving for at least a decade after their introduction. For one thing, there was a flood of new television shows during that time, something most surrounding years could not match. In late 1996, audiences were introduced to 7th Heaven, Sabrina: The Teenage Witch, Judge Judy, and Access Hollywood. The former was on television for over a decade, while the latter two are still on tv today; Sabrina: The Teenage Witch was really popular for all of the Y2K era, staying on television until 2003. Throughout 1997, you had the debuts of several generation-defining series, including King of the Hill, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Stargate SG-1, and eventually South Park.

This only just scratches the surface, as music was also revolutionized on several fronts throughout late 1996 to mid-1997. Instead of Death Row Records, you now had No Limit at the center of the hardcore rap genre, while Puff Daddy and Mase were now the main faces of Bad Boy Records; Biggie still had plenty of chart hits throughout the late 90s, but they were mostly out of mourning, similar to 2Pac achieving posthumous success with "Smile," "Do for Love," and "Changes." Teen pop, which took a complete backseat to adult ballads and funky r&b in the mid-90s, was now dominating the charts, thanks to the breakthroughs of the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Savage Garden, Hanson, Robyn, and 98 Degrees in the United States, plus artists like Peter Andre, Damage, All Saints, and 911 internationally. Some of the biggest alternative bands of the mid-90s, such as the Cranberries, Gin Blossoms, and Soul Asylum all but disappeared after 1996 (the Cranberries had "When You're Gone" at the very start of 1997, but after that, they vanished from the public eye), while a whole bunch of new ones took their place, like Matchbox Twenty, Third Eye Blind, Smash Mouth, and Sugar Ray took their place in 1997. Urban music, while still in a period of transition until about spring 1999, was already starting to target millennials en masse, beginning with the breakthrough of the game-changing producer Timbaland in 1996, as well as "No Diggity," the first truly millennial-targeted song to make it to #1, being released that same year. A lot of the biggest hits of 1997 had that distinctively Gen Y shuffle-beat and edginess that was completely missing before this shift. Usher's "You Make Me Wanna" is one of the biggest examples of this, but even new songs by classic 90s groups like Total and SWV sounded extremely different from their older work. Unlike the Gen-X era, which was rebellious, carefree, and artistic, hip hop from 1997 onwards was predominantly more materialistic, more repetitive, crasser, and, in the more artistic exceptions, more cosmopolitan. Like Jordan has highlighted, pop punk started to undergo a big shift around 1997 as well, going back to stuff like Less Than Jake's Losing Streak, but becoming especially prominent with albums such as the Offspring's Ixnay on the Hombre, blink-182's Dude Ranch, and Green Day's Nimrod. Classic 90s eurodance died in most of Europe by late 1996, and it vanished in the United States after Real McCoy's "One More Time." Instead, you had a lot of hardcore house, dance/DJ, and bubblegum eurodance acts dominating the electronic world. Finally, in May, Radiohead released OK Computer, considered one of the greatest and most revolutionary albums in history, especially out of the past couple of decades. With classic 90s alternative movements starting to lose focus, OK Computer redefined alternative and artistic rock for a completely new generation with completely new standards, prophesying the post-modern dystopia that the 21st century has so far been known as.

Video games were also dramatically different from what they had been during the early and mid-90s. By the beginning of 1997, 3D gaming was standard, and living room party games like GoldenEye 007 and Mario Kart 64 became a favorite pastime for gamers of that era. To be fair, video games are largely kid culture, and the 16-bit systems were predominantly targeted towards early millennials, but the PlayStation broadened the industry's appeal to more mature audiences as well, more than ever before. It can be easily stated that millennials were the first generation with video games a part of their adolescent/adult culture and not just their childhoods.

In world news, there's a lot to be said about 1997, as well. Although Bill Clinton would still be President of the United States for another four years, Tony Blair became the new Prime Minister of the UK and would remain the head of state for a full decade. The Internet was also becoming a bigger and bigger deal at the time. Though we hadn't yet hit an economic surplus, the market was already clearly pointing to the World Wide Web as the standard of the future, which was still not fully certain beforehand. The death of Princess Diana also took away one of the world's most beloved individuals of the preceding several years.

In my opinion, when you really look at the elements, 1997 was really the true beginning of culture for the new millennium. Even though a lot of classic 90s stuff remained popular well into the late 90s, the sheer range of new foundations laid in and around that year made it one of the most critical turning points in the modern evolution of popular culture. I would actually go as far to say that that year was pretty much as close to 1993 as it was to 2002, maybe even 2003. Just considering that you still had a lot of the same type of music that was popular in 1997, the Web 1.0 era still being dominant, many of the same television shows popular in 1997 also big then, 3D living room games being huge both times, fashion not having evolved to a huge degree, and numerous other factors, 1997 actually has a ton in common with the first several years of Gen Y culture being dominant, even though some of the aesthetics at the time still felt pretty old.

Another point about 1997 is that even Nu Metal started to gain momentum with The Deftones' Around the Fur (hell, you could even say starting in 1996 with Sepultura's Roots and KoRn's Life is Peachy) which was highly influential to the genre throughout the huge over-saturation of 2000-2002 (aside from KoRn, of course, who are probably the most influential Nu Metal band of this period. The "masters of Nu Metal" as red capped teenagers would say). When bands like Chevelle released their second album and TRUSTCompany (ha at Nu Metal band names) released their debut they both literally copied the sound of that album to a T. You can even hear it's influence with Papa Roach on Infest and Lovehatetragedy and Linkin Park with Hybrid Theory and Meteora.

In the future, maybe about 20 years or later, they will be an exact cutoff year for the end of the Millennial Generation, my prediction would be either 1999 or 2000 as the last year for the Millennials, because these are the two most common ending years for that generation.

1999 and 2000 could be the cutoff years, since both of them are similar with late Millennials.

If the Greatest Generation started in 1900 instead of 1901, then the Millennial Generation ended in 1999 instead of 2000, but that's assuming the 20th century started in 1900 and ended in 1999.


20th century is 1901-2000.

A century is 100 years
20th = 20
20*100 = 2000

A century is always named after the year it ends on. 20th century is named after 2000 since it's when  it ends. 21st century ends on 2100. 19th century ends on 1900.

Wouldn't make sense to call it the 20th century yet it ends in 1999. All centuries and millenniums start on the year that ends with a "1" (1901, 2001, 2101) and ends on the 100th year (1800, 1900, 2000, 2100, 2200 etc)


In the future, maybe about 20 years or later, they will be an exact cutoff year for the end of the Millennial Generation, my prediction would be either 1999 or 2000 as the last year for the Millennials, because these are the two most common ending years for that generation.


Probably. I've noticed that the date span changes depending on when it was made. Although I do feel that some starting and ending date spans are a bit arbitrary. Some writers would only choose a certain span because it "feels right" to them instead of what is actually right. But then again this whole generation thing is a bit silly to me. When it comes to millennials I base it when the Y culture started and ended. Last year to have Gen Y culture to me was around 2013 (although I could be wrong on this). Those who were in late high school or college (or beyond) by 2013 mainly had a Gen Y cultured life.  But hey what do I know. Heck even my own ideas can be seen as arbitrary.

I can DEFINITELY see why people born around 82-86 sometimes consider themselves Gen X instead of Millennials. The culture of the early-mid 90s seemed like a logical "successor" to that of the 80s, and a lot of late 80s culture still lingered around that time.

kid culture wise.... yes! But regarding the actual mainstream culture.... the early 90s were the successor to the 80s; but the mid 90s nope! That was the heart of the decade.

I think the main thing that correlates the first half of the 90s with the 80s is the technology. 1990-1994 and the first two thirds of 1995 were still the age of pre-Internet computers, 2D side-scrolling video games, pagers, the golden age of cable television, and cassette tapes being a popular music format. Once things like cell phones, the Internet, Instant Messenger, and 3D video games started to become huge, everyday life started to change quite a bit.

Yeah, there was definitely a massive technological shift that happened during the '90s. In 1990, computers were still a luxury item, the Sega Genesis was a cutting edge console, cell phones were for rich people, the internet was mostly limited to college campuses, and some people (like my parents) still did not have cable television. By 1999 a large percentage of the population was online, the PlayStation 2 was on the horizon, DVD's were a thing, and cell phones were becoming an increasingly common sight in middle class areas.

There was cool innovative devices being made, but it completely take over everyone's lives. As for comments like these I really wish Youtubers would stop making such crazy comments. Youtube is not the best place to be talking about eras and the people that grew up in them due to the toxic youtube community. Youtube Comment Section is just as bad as them Buzzfeed articles.

Maybe if this comment was made in 2020 I'd tolerate it, but in the 2010s it just seems very silly.

I, too, wish to be born all over again. I wish I could be born in a repeated cycle forever and ever because it's the ultimate way of experiencing childhood (the greatest stage of life... ahhh...).

Runescape was huge in my neighbourhood and school 2004-2006. We sunk so many hours in that game, it was tragic. World of Warcraft was super popular around then too. By late 2006 Runescape was very passé. We heard about a kid who was still playing it and everyone's reaction was "you still play that?" :o

This is just for fun, but this is what I believe are the "cusp" years for each generation (i.e. grey ones, where marketers claim often claim they're one or the other without consensus).

Baby Boomers/Gen X - 1961-1964
Gen X/Millennials - 1977-1984
Millennials/Gen Z - 1995-2000
Gen Z/Gen Alpha - 2008-2015

Also, I really don't understand why news articles constantly drill the point into your head that Baby Boomers are 1946-1964. For many years, 1961-64 were considered early Gen X years, but then they just said "No, fu*k that, let's change it". Apparently the change was done because some early X-ers wanted to appear "older and wiser". ;D

2008 for Gen Alpha might be too early. 1981ers were 27 years old, most 2008ers were born to Gen X people 28-34 years old. 2011/2012 are probably the first year for majority "children of Millennials". I think my nephew was born 2012, to my 1983 cousin.

The bold solely depends on when these generations begin and end. If they start with the ones shown, those would the cusps. If they begin later, then the cusps would be much later.

And here's a photo of how generations are in different countries someone sent me.

Articles always mess things up. Millennial generation span had been change 5-7+ times now since it was first coined. Some websites uses new gen spans while others use old ones. And then you have some websites that just use strange gen spans that you've never seen anywhere else.

Oh wow. Japan has too many gens. And I like how China does their gens. They just base everything one decade. There is no Millennials or Gen X. Nope, just 50s Gen, 80s gen, 00s gen, 90s gen etc. They prefer to keep it simple it seems. Which is probably why they don't end up with so many people trying to change the gen spans. No one can say "I think the Post 50s Gen is 1943 - 1962" or something crazy like that. North America's gens need to be like China's gens.

People have been saying that the parents generation are usually 2 generations behind their children's generation, for example, Boomers are the parents of the Millennials, Gen X are the parents of the Homelanders, etc. but sometimes, this is not true for some children who are born in the cusp years of each generation. Let's say that 1996 is a late millennial year and Child A was born to two Boomer parents who was born in the late 50's/early 60's, two generations before Millennial, but Child B was born to two Gen X parents born in the late 60's, a generation behind Millennial, which 1996 is included in both scenarios. So do you consider Child A a Millennial, but Child B a Homelander if we use the two generation rule to apply to those two children and their parents? Or do you consider both children born in 1996 millennials even if Child B was born to two late 60's Gen X parents?

That depends. Some people have kids when they're like 20; others wait until they're 30-40.

My parents are Gen X and my grandparents are Baby Boomers - unusually, they had my parents when they were only in college.

Yeah, which is why I'm thinking in averages. 1981ers can have kids in 2008, many definitely did. But statistically most 2008ers were born to Gen X, people who are 28-34 are going to be pumping more babies than people who are 14-27 haha.

I know it's soft all science, but it kind of annoys me how Baby Boomers used to be defined as 1942-1960 or so, but then they arbitrarily changed it to 1946-1964 which is  what you see today. Apparently boomers have been trying to claim the early Gen Xers to inflate their numbers for quite some time.

For example: Obama was born in 61 and doesn't consider himself a boomer. In fact, if anything, his mother (who was born in 42) was a Boomer since she more than likely grew up going to Beatles concerts and practiced a counterculture/hippie lifestyle.

Very few people born in 61-64 identify with boomers in any way. They were in like the 3rd grade when the Kent State shooting happened and women's rights protests were burning bras and they sure didn't listen to the Beatles or Rolling Stones first-hand. And early 60s is when the members of Motley Crue, Metallica, RHCP, and GNR were born so yeah...that would be the beginning of Gen X

Sanders (late 1941) doesn't feel like a Boomer to me but Clinton (1947) does. I mean she was a literal hippie in the late 60s, while Bernie was a civil rights protestor in the early 60s (which is associated with Silent Gen).

Things like that is why I never truly take generations seriously. One day the generation span will be created and everyone will use it. But then some time later people are like "Oh no the generation should be this!" then BAM the generation span is immediately changed. Then sometime down the line the span may change again.  If generations spans are this inconsistent it makes me wonder why people bother with taking this whole thing seriously (unless they're part of a demographic marketing company).

That's why there are generation cusps which about about 5/6 years. As for the the concept itself, they're not just a marketing strategy, they do exist. Check out these old pages.

Even in those sources the date spans change. One says 1977 - 1995 while the 3rd one says 1981 - 2004. The 2nd one was made in 1992 so I'm curious on when they thought the generation would end.

As for Cusps I wonder where you'd say they be placed in terms of generations. Makes me wonder if companies/researchers use cusps often.

Well one is by S&H; one is from a site back in 2001; the middle one, Millennials weren't thought of yet as at that time, Xers were the main focus.

They probably do, but they're not shown often especially the Y/Z cusp.

Most people don't like it starting in 1995 since that can be considered too early. Same with Millennials staring in 1980. The way I see the things that'll make a 1995 born a Gen Z would also make a 1993-4 born Gen Z as well since they pretty much grew up in the same time period. As for 1980 being the start of millennials I'm confused. I see Millennials starting in 1982 since they'd be the first to graduate on the year 2000.  Give it a few years.

You end up getting so many different answers and generations spans. And generations spans that you get today aren't the same spans that you'd get 10 years ago or 10 years later. Until there is 100% agreed on span I can't take the generation thing seriously. Also why in that first pic it says that Gen Z ends in 2015? What happened last year that would mark the end of a generation? And also Gen X and Y in that first pic seem to overlap. Gen X ends on 1981, but Gen Y starts in 1975? And 1995 is part of both Y and Z?  ??? I wonder if 2 gens can exist within the same year. And in all the other pics I've noticed that they all give different spans. In the 3rd pic Gen X is ends on 1979 and starts in 1965. In the last pic Gen Y starts in 1982 and ends in 1984 (is that even long enough to be considered a generation?). No consistency on gen spans even on the internet it seems.

What doesn't make sense to me is that we're still using the same generational theories as the ones proposed in the 90s when a lot of us were sucking on our pacifiers. How would they know how we'd behave as adults? ;D They can't predict the future or what events would shape us.

I wondered that as well. It's why certain gen spans can be seen as outdated. They were created way before any of the big world events would happen and shape those that're within the generation. For example the Gen Alpha spans that you see today would most like change in the future. There hasn't been any big events yet (as of 2016) and the sources that say that the Gen would end in the 2020s can't actually predict the future. It's a bit funny some choose to keep using old generational theories, though.

Yeah, but Mark Zuckerberg sucks so who wants to listen to him? I think I should be Gen X, personally. Growing up I was pretty tough. I listened to the real Green Day (1986-2003) rather than the crap that came afterwards and that seems to me like a good enough reason to be a part of the X brotherhood.


I've actually heard that theory before. The reason crime rates went down after 1994 is because the Internet was popularized and kids finally had something to do at home lol.


But in 1994-2003 kids were still all about having a good time and actually getting some. Then, in 2004, when the Razor came out and everyone hopped on broadband, society declined and people decided it would be better to be pacified in their homes.

According to Wikipedia, the "widest" ranges used for Gen X are 1965-1984 (used by Harvard Business school) and 1965-1985 (used in an article by The Guardian).

I find that kinda funny, because Mark zuckerberg (b. 1984) says he is a Millennial, even though he could just as well be Gen X according to some. :o


1984 is more millennial than me lol, it's not even cusp. 90s kid, didn't get into high school until 1998-99 when Millennial culture was in full swing and the Internet was well established, graduated uni in 2006 almost right into the recession. Only 24 years old during 2008 election. Yeah they're pretty millennial.

Yes a 1984 is an Early Yer... but I'd could see why they would consider themselves Xers cause they're kid culture of the early 90s was kinda similar to the late 80s, and were high schoolers before the 90s ended.

I see what you mean. For example, I will always be an Obama kid, since I witnessed the 2008 election when I was 12 which was exciting and I was 13-20 throughout his two terms.

What about Glam/Hair Metal and punk rock? That's the real Gen X music to me. Grunge is late X. Grunge is to Gen X what Dubstep is to Gen Y. The very very last. Most X'ers hate Grunge from what I've noticed online.

It depends what Punk Rock, though. 70's Punk from 1976/1977-1980 is a boomer/early X thing but the Hardcore Punk and Pop Punk from 1980-1989 and not to mention the New Wave (not real Punx but whatever) from that same time was predominately X with some small boomer leftovers. That's more of an early-mid Gen X thing but yeah, I see why you say it's real X. Hair Metal lasted 'til 1993-ish so 1978'ers would be the last ones to start high school when you still had rockers and Hair Metal was a big thing. Side note: I agree with those X'ers. Grunge was sh!tty music and Nirvana was the only good band to come out of that scene. A lot of X'ers who were involved with 80's Grunge/Punk hate 90's Grunge/Punk because they view it as a commercialization of something that used to be genuine to them.

I agree with these two posts. I've seen alot of kids born in, like, 1990 claiming they "grew up" under Bill Clinton, or kids born in 1980 saying they "grew up" under Ronald Reagan, and I totally disagree with that. To me, the President that you "grew up" under is the first one that you're actually old enough to have been fully aware of his policies and their real-world consequences.

I was still a kid during pretty much all of Bill Clinton's presidency. I remember learning about the '92 and '96 campaigns in school, and following some of the impeachment stuff in 1998-99, but that's pretty much it. On the other hand, I remember everything about the Bush administration because Dubya's term is when I really came of age. The "hanging chad's" in 2000, thinking he was great after 9/11, turning against him after Iraq, Valerie Plame, the Katrina debacle, John Stewart and Keith Olbermann destroying Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld on a daily basis, etc., I remember all that stuff like it was yesterday. I might've been a kid during the Clinton years, but I'm definitely a "Bush kid" from a political standpoint, because 2001-09 shaped so much of my worldview.

You still don't get it. We're not talking about the biological definition of a kid. We're talking about the "fully growing" up from baby to young adult version of kids being apart of the pop culture. Babies/toddlers (0-2), children (3-12), teenagers (13-19), and young adults (early-mid twenties) can all be called "kids" of an era. Have you heard older adults on TV say "when I was a kid I used to have posters of this popular artist or star" (they're talking about when they were teenagers), or you ever hear sports analysts on television talk about "college kids" growing up and gaining experience on the field or court? Might I ask, do you honestly think biological kids under the age of 10 care & understand about politics and can fully comprehend the real world around them?

People need to stop using the word "kid" for when they refer to moments where they were 13+. It's very confusing and doesn't make sense as someone from ages 13-19 aren't kid age (by the technical definition). But other than that I agree. Those who're 10 and under (basically elementary schoolers) don't understand politics and can't really understand the world around them. It's probably why childhood  is a person's time of innocence. I didn't start and fully understanding and caring about politics, wars, or worldly concerns and desires until I around age 13 or 14.

I had ice cream all over my face so I was Gothic. I even used the white curtains to dry my hands instead of towels, ain't nobody telling me how to dry MY hands. And I drew graffiti all over the walls to express my creative side. I was a punk rebel, you should be on my side. I even went into my mom's dressing table and decided to break society imposed gender roles. The nail polish.  Different colours for different fingers. It was beautiful man, it was art. I was the greatest 4 year old rocker. The greatest.

If in all her 25 years, the worst you can think of is her emails, which doesn't even say much about her character, she is going to be the greatest president in history.

I've asked this before, but have you guys ever considered those born in 1984-85 to be Xers rather than Millennials?

In a 2012 article for the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University, George Masnick wrote that the "Census counted 82.1 million" Gen Xers in the U.S. The Harvard Center uses 1965 to 1984 to define Gen X so that Boomers, Xers, and Millennials "cover equal 20-year age spans".

John Markert at Cumberland University employs a similar approach, but wrote a 2004 article in which "Generations should be discrete twenty-year periods" but with "ten-year cohorts" and 5-year "bihorts" (his word) non-simultaneously, classifies Generation X as those born in the years 1966 to 1985. Markert censures other methods and tactics to define Generation X in his article stating that "inconsistent use of dates by the same author" simply results "in an apple to lemon measurement standard".

The Telegraph cited Gen X birth dates as falling between a longer time span (1965–1985),

1984 is pure millennial, 1985 even more so. 1983 is probably the last year to have any X in them, having already graduated high school when 9/11 happened, and being 13 in 1996. But even they're like 90% Y.

They're definitely millennials. They seem to have forgotten that they were in HS during the Y2K era and in college in the core 00s. Moreover, they would been too young anyway to be of the X pop culture (which was basically gone by the time they hit secondary school (Both MS & HS) in the mid 90s).

Subject: Re: What generation are you?

Written By: #Infinity on 04/25/16 at 8:14 pm

84-85 births are unquestionably early millennials, not X. They started high school in autumn 1998 at the earliest, during which Y2K culture was almost totally formed and the last significant Gen-X influences were on their way out. Their adolescent experience was absolutely dominated by the Internet, with things like chat messengers becoming really popular around that time. 1999 is a completely different universe even compared to 1996 and has more in common with the 2000s all the way through 2005. I know Jordan likes to argue than 1998-2002 had nothing in common with 2004 and on, but a lot of the same bands were still popular, adult contemporary was hardly any different compared to the late 90s, and even urban music hadn't tremendously involved and was of pretty much the same spirit that dominated 1999; not all of it was crunk, although as Jordan has pointed out, crunk music was already emerging in the 90s.

I agree with some points. Urban party rap hadn't really changed at all since 1997-ish (though, 1997-2004 still had some good rap albums leftover by the Beastie Boys, Eminem and Swollen Members. There is nothing interesting to me about the genre post-2004) and I see how adult contemporary stayed pretty samey, too.  And yeah, I still stand by what I said before that Crunk was definitely emerging in the late 90's (but wouldn't truly get popular until 2003) and even stuff like Master P's Make 'Em Say UGH, for example, could possibly be considered the first Crunk (or at least Crunk-like) hit. When it comes to bands, though, it seems that pretty much all the rock bands and even a lot of the singers changed their sounds and images to fit the new real 00's style of music. The Rap Metal, Pop Punk and Post-Grunge bands went off into weird soft rock/post-post grunge/faux-Emo directions or faded away because they didn't adapt. None of them retained the energy or diversity that made them popular in the early 00's. They'd go from the classic baggy dickies and spiky hair to the MySpace faux-Emo fashion whether it's Green Day or Papa Roach. And even stuff like Emo, which changed from clean cut sweater vests and thick rimmed glasses to makeup and black hair over the face. It came out of nowhere in 2003-2004. For me, overall, 1998-2002 felt more like a faux-90's yet a what-if 00's that lead on to something new and cool but when the real 00's set in around 2004, it just felt like something very different to me.

I've asked a similar question, but do you guys think of those born 1961-64 more as Boomers or Gen Xers? Jon Stewart, Obama, Sarah Palin, or Michael J. Fox, for example.

Some people have described the 1954-1964 cohort as "Generation Jones" (i.e. keeping up with the Joneses), similar to how ~1977-1984 is the "Oregon Trail Generation".

I'd say 1961/1962 are pure boomers, 1963/1964 are probably Boomer/X cusp. Steve Jobs is definitely a Boomer, being born 1955. Don't know enough about Michael Fox.

Edit: also I think I just found your NeoGAF account :P you don't think I'd notice the same mistake twice ;D

Edit 2: I see you also got your answer on whether 1984/85 are Millennials. I also see I was proven right that those born 1977-1980 are X/Y cusp, they're not all that different from Gen Y.

"Everything was better back then" is a saying I do get annoyed of. It annoys me just as much as the people who have the "Since/If it's modern then it sucks" or "Older = Better" mentality. There are quite a lot of old things that while I enjoyed I'd rather they didn't come back. I don't feel like using dial up again. Had to hide the phone just so I can be sure that no one will interrupt my internet access.  :( The struggle was real.

It's worse when the "some things were better" isn't actually true. People still talk to each other, nothing's really changed. I don't get why Twitter on a phone gets some people so wildly mad. I do think it is a literal mental disease if you've reached that stage in your nostalgia.

Twitter on a phone isn't even a bad thing. It's similar to texting people. It's sort of like how people get upset with selfies. Yes, selfies are silly, but it's not bad to the point where people gotta say dumb things like "Selfies just shows what's wrong with this generation" as if selfies can somehow cause harm to people or the economy. And then we get to the moments where we encounter the egotistical people who're clearly crippled by their own nostalgia. They'd say things like "I pity this generation for not growing up with ". First off the fact that you pity people just because they didn't watch the same cartoons that you did or did the same activities that you took part in is beyond ridiculous. Nostalgia is fine, but there are moments where some people just go out of control with it.

My 10 year old sister is nostalgic for kindergarten because we lived in a neighbourhood then. The other one asked me to find a show for her that aired when she was 7 years old, I forgot the name though.

I already know which Disney sitcoms and movies they'll be nostalgic for. Definitely nostalgic for superhero movies and TV shows, and a few Disney stuff like Malificient and Zootopia.

My younger siblings that're growing up now will surely be nostalgic for the cartoons/movies that released in the 2010s. Disney's Revival age movies such as Zootopia, Big Hero 6, Frozen. The Marvel Cinematic Universe movies such as Avengers or Iron Man. Cartoons like Adventure Time or Steven Universe. They enjoy the shows now and will probably be nostalgic for them in the future. My siblings that're kids today are at ages between 0-8. Some are in their core childhood growing up now while others will have their childhood mainly in the late part of the '10s and '20s.

Haha you've got your hands full! That zero year old is going to grow up in an interesting time.

It's weird to think my 10 year old sisters are going to be entering middle school in September. Their core childhoods are more or less drawing to a close. They're born mid 2005, so 2011-2016 is their core childhood.

The 0-8 year olds were born in 2008, 2011,2012,2013,2014, and 2016. The 2008's core childhood is mainly in the mid '10s. While the 2011-2012 born will mainly grow up in the late '10s. The 2012 born will be a late '10s/early '20s hybrid. 2013-2014 will mainly grow up in the early '20s. And the 2016 born will be a early/mid '20s hybrid (this is all depending on your definition of core childhood which will vary). All my younger siblings are younger than yours so they'll grow up in different periods.

When those 2010's born people comes of age in the 2030's, they will all think of the 2010's as the old times, just like how we think of the 1990's being the old times in the 2010's.


By the time the 2030s roll around, the 2010s will look like the stone age to everybody. We're on the verge of a massive tech boom. People call the 1950s and afterwards the "Silicon boom era", I can see people calling the 2020s and afterwards the automation boom. The world is going to be very different in 15 years.

Wow, that's a lot of siblings! And none of them remember the early 10s  >:( it's up to you to spread the Gospel. The 2011-2013 borns are going to be interesting if the tech boom of the late 10s materializes, the whole self driving cars, home automation, virtual reality stuff. They'd be the last to remember a world before that. The 2014 born will remember it vaguely.

Yep. They'd all experience the mid '10s and later. I probably will have to jump in and tell them what life in the early '10s was like. Either me or some o my other siblings (there's 11 after all). If the tech boom happens then it'll interesting to see how it'll effect them.The siblings who'll grow up in the '10s will have differences from the 2016 born who'll grow up in the '20s. But what's great about having older siblings is that they'd tell the younger siblings how things used to be and probably introduce them to older things. Due to being the oldest I never had that benefit. But it's easy to tell that there will be a difference between the 2008 born mainly due to being born in a separate decade from the 2011-2016 born.  By the 2008 born's childhood will probably be over before the tech boom happens. It's some crazy think about sometimes.

Yeah, from the looks of all the latest upcoming tech (printers that can print food, self driving cars, virtual reality, transparent/bendable phones, Cybatholon etc) we could end up in a tech boom. By the 2020s onward the 2010s and before will look pretty primitive. And of course with a new president among other culture things I can predict us have a cultural shift. When the 2010s born get into college they'll likely see how things have changed since they were kids.

"Everything was better back then" is an illness-type nostalgia. I don't get nostalgic for my Motorola C385, it was a garbage phone. If I saw it today, I'd probably get angry ;D

http://i-cdn.phonearena.com/images/phones/4146-large/Motorola-C380C385.jpg



Don't even get me started with those Nokia phones  ;D


I think the message from that video was showing is that even though we had cellphones, we still made contact with each other on a daily basis. Yes, people texted and ran up the bills; however, they were just simple phones that didn't distract you from your friends and family as they didn't even have other capabilities like the later ones.

Another thing to acknowledge is that during that time, there were T-mobile sidekicks that people had, but they were expensive and most couldn't even afford them.


I've asked a similar question, but do you guys think of those born 1961-64 more as Boomers or Gen Xers? Jon Stewart, Obama, Sarah Palin, or Michael J. Fox, for example.

Some people have described the 1954-1964 cohort as "Generation Jones" (i.e. keeping up with the Joneses), similar to how ~1977-1984 is the "Oregon Trail Generation".


Well considering they were in secondary school (both MS and HS) when Boomer culture was still in full swing in the 70s and the fact they were part of the target audience at the same time, I'd say they're undoubtedly Boomers. It would be weird for those born between those years to be considered Xers especially as they graduated HS between 1979 and 1983 and college between 1983 and 1987.


On a side note I will admit that I'm interested in seeing what nostalgia will be like for the current generation of kids. I'm the oldest out of 11 siblings. And the younger ones who're less than 10 are growing up in a time period that is different from my own. It'll be interesting to talk to them in the future and see what they'd reminiscent about.

I wish they didn't sometimes, but hey I'll still be sure to welcome the newcomer to the family with open arms. But I'd rather not there being a 12th sibling. Heck I didn't want there to be more than 2 of us. But the whether a sibling is born or not is power beyond me as I'm not the one having the kids.


It's just crazy to think that there are 11 kids in total. All growing up in different time periods. Some still in their childhoods today while others became of age in an earlier time periods. Can you imagine what it's like when a younger siblings from 2008 comes up to you and asks what the 2000s were like? I'd never thought I'd have that I'd have to answer a question like that.

I grew up in a working class-ish area so most people in my graduating class didn't have a cellphone, period. Heck, even I never used my cellphone.

Nothing makes you feel weirder than being around kids that are considerably younger than you. Especially when you are still a relatively young person yourself and their frame of reference is just so radically different than yours. I have just one sibling (a brother that is only a few years younger than me), but I do have several younger cousins, so I know what it's like.

One of the younger kids (born in 2006) makes fun of me due to my preference for 8-bit and 16-bit games over those of today. He thinks of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Sonic 2 as "old people games" ;D. He was also shocked some time back when I informed him that, back in the "old days", people couldn't use the internet and talk on the phone at the same time.

I'm not sure exactly when Gen Y ends and Gen Z begins, but the two of us definitely come from two different worlds.

If it makes you feel worse, growing up, I also felt you 2D kids had more in common with my grandpa than you did with me.  ;D

I just couldn't understand why my cousins hated Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 simply because they weren't in 2D!  >:(

On the other hand, my first console was a NES, so 2D games weren't completely foreign to me. And I played 2D Sonic on the GBA (Sonic Advance) and on the Gamecube (Mega Collection), and loved them. That didn't stop me from thinking my cousins were old farts.

The 0-8 year olds were born in 2008, 2011,2012,2013,2014, and 2016. The 2008's core childhood is mainly in the mid '10s. While the 2011-2012 born will mainly grow up in the late '10s. The 2012 born will be a late '10s/early '20s hybrid. 2013-2014 will mainly grow up in the early '20s. And the 2016 born will be a early/mid '20s hybrid (this is all depending on your definition of core childhood which will vary). All my younger siblings are younger than yours so they'll grow up in different periods. The 2008-2012 born will remember the Obama years, but the 2013-2016 will mainly remember the Hilary or Donald years.

Nothing makes you feel weirder than being around kids that are considerably younger than you. Especially when you are still a relatively young person yourself and their frame of reference is just so radically different than yours. I have just one sibling (a brother that is only a few years younger than me), but I do have several younger cousins, so I know what it's like.

One of the younger kids (born in 2006) makes fun of me due to my preference for 8-bit and 16-bit games over those of today. He thinks of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Sonic 2 as "old people games" ;D. He was also shocked some time back when I informed him that, back in the "old days", people couldn't use the internet and talk on the phone at the same time.

I'm not sure exactly when Gen Y ends and Gen Z begins, but the two of us definitely come from two different worlds.

So... Bill Clinton blames millennials (probably just 90s kids, but I beg to differ) for the 2008 economic recession, and the corrupted Congress prior to 2010? I don't know how should I react to that strongly. I like Clinton more than Obama, and I could say that he didn't even had that much drama as POTUS. He made the economy great as f*ck back in the '90s and very early '00s. Not to mention that he's #1 on my favorite US Presidents. I know that I'm barely a Millennial, since I was born in late 1999, but this is just outrageous. At least he could have some respect, since Millennials are responsible for electing Obama as president in the 2008/2012 elections.

This. I can't tell you how many times I'll see these statements in the comments section. Heck, these same folks even say part of the X generation when they are clearly Millennials.

Another thing they're not aware of is that the Millennials come from that they graduated high school around the new Millennium and not those who were born.

Hmm, as of 2016 I'd say Plural especially if we're talking about the Associate degree students. I assume that the people who're now in college were high schoolers around 2 years ago. If we're talking about those who've been in college for 3-4 years or more (as of 2016) already going for their bachelors degrees or higher I'd say they would be the last Millennial students. But I could be wrong on this. The bachelor students would be the ones carrying the late Millennial culture. While the new Associate students are transitioning in the Plural culture.

Can't say an exact date. But I'd probably say around 2013 as that is the last year with millennial culture. The one's to graduate high school in 2013 would the ones in Universities now since they'd be in college for around 3+ years now as of 2016. Done with their Associates degrees and going for their Bachelors. Late 2013 (when the next school year begins) where I'd say we transitioned to Z culture. And those that're in community colleges now would've graduate high school sometime in 2014. So as of 2016 they'd still be getting their Associates. But this is all just my own guess.

As for those who started college late guess you'd could say they'd cause the college cultural to be predominantly Plural with a hint of late millennial. Late Millennials in a Plural Student body. If you didn't start late then you'd most likely be with the crowd that carries the late millennial culture.  I don't expect college to be 100% Plural until the late 2010s. Give it about 1-2 years.

As for those who started college late guess you'd could say they'd cause the college cultural to be predominantly Plural with a hint of late millennial. Late Millennials in a Plural Student body. If you didn't start late then you'd most likely be with the crowd that carries the late millennial culture.  I don't expect college to be 100% Plural until the late 2010s. Give it about 1-2 years.
That means pop culture is predominantly Plural with a small ounce of Millennial. Would you consider today's to be mostly targeted towards Plurals? 


It depends on the article. I've seen a ton of articles that claim that millennials will "save the world". Many of those articles are written by millennials (no surprise there). Honestly, looking at the people at my college, I honestly can't see anything that spectacular. I can't see how those vapid sheep will "save the world". Then again, it may vary from area to area. I live in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area, so you can probably see why I don't have much faith in my generation  :-\\
Same here! I've seen many articles like that. We might not be able to save it, but we can change it for the better.

As for your school, is the environment mostly Millennial or Plural?

Seems to be a mix of both Millennials and Plurals, though we have people of all different ages. To be honest though, I don't particularly see our generation making the world any better or any worse. Then again, a good portion of us are still maturing, so perhaps time will tell. But based on the millennials (and even some older plurals) in my area, I honestly don't see much potential. Perhaps it's different where you guys live. I don't know.

Same here. Despite me starting late (I had to take care of something important), the atmosphere was clearly Millennial; however, that would be for universities. From what Toon stated, community colleges that year could have been Plural as they are mainly 2/3 years.

Same here. Since I'm in community, there's a mixture of all age groups. Are you currently in community college or university? As for your second statement, it could happen soon as the older members are almost close to 40 making them more likely to be entrepreneurs (although some are) and even be in the Senate and House.

I live in California as well, but down south. It's probably different because SoCal and NoCal has distinct environments.

From many articles that I read it seems that pop culture is targeting the Plural audience. Millennial audience is still be targeted, but they're not the main focus like how they used to be around 3-4 or so years ago. By the late 2010s/early 2020s I figured that pop culture would be mainly targeted towards Plurals. In Universities it still has a Millennial feel, but by the late 2010s/early 2020s I assume that the Millennials that're in Universities now would've finished college by then. This is me just spitballing, but I'd think the Plural feel will fully take over sometime around 2018. Millennials in Universities should be finished by 2018. And 2018 is also the time that 2000's born will begin to enter college.

Yeah 15/16 is around the time when you see people talk about "The youth" or "young people", you feel like they're talking about you. When I was 10 I didn't feel I had anything in common with people in high school, I was still a little kid.

I think your "youth culture" days are from 15 till around the time you get married, usually around 30 (of course some people get married later and stay younger longer  ;)). Although a lot of people feel like they're old around their mid-20s I guess, but not me!  ;D

Same here, except I would say my youth culture was in full effect by age 14. Definitely 14, which was the start of my peak teen years as well. Going to cross country conditioning & practice around football players, starting the high school youth ministry, and going to high school were huge moments that made age 14 a huge jump from 13. 11 1/2, 12 & 13 all felt the same to me. Age 11-13 my kid culture was over but at the same time I was transitioning over to the youth culture or mainstream culture. Age 10 was still a complete kid to me just like what you said.

That's awesome! Yeah, 14 or entering high school can be a transformative experience. I went through a similar phase, though a bit later. Me getting my first job as cashier in October 2007 when I was 14 and a half is what flipped the switch. I think it's going to depend on the person. The age when you start getting more involved in the world, joining school clubs, or getting a job or volunteering, or getting your driver's licence. It usually happens around 14 to 16, and if not by then, you're part of the youth culture whether you like it or not  ;D

I let the dogs out for the first time when I was 9, I started buying music and listening to the radio when I was 10, my voice cracked around my 12th birthday, but like I said, I don't identify with the youth culture because I was too young to get involved in most of it. I can't watch The Hulk without dragging my parents along.  I couldn't do 90% of the things the girls in Mean Girls were doing. It wasn't my movie even if I watched it. 2007/2008 onwards was my time  ;D When I watched Superbad, I knew the movie was talking about people my age. Not Mean Girls.

And I identify with the youth culture of today, because Justin Trudeau won the 2015 Canadian election because of high youth turnout. That was me and my gang who did that. So yeah, I still identify with the youth culture and label.

Actually, they are. When I was 10, I had played M rated games and I wasn't prevented from them at all; I was fully aware of the fashion people wore (especially girls); I recall the songs coming out when they were brand new (although it began for me a lot earlier); I remember the events that took place; I even had already formed my identity with my hobbies, personality and future career.

I was in Grade 5 in 2003 (elementary school) when I got into mainstream pop culture, at least music. When Avril Lavigne made her debut I bought her album and then I got into a few other bands by listening to the radio and Yahoo! Music. For television, it was when I was 11, I caught the last season of Friends and Fraisier live (and I don't understand Fraisier fans, show is kinda boring), and I caught the premier of Desperate Housewives and Lost. Then there were reality shows like Pimp My Ride and Hell's Kitchen lmao.

I don't think college students are the last age group for most pop culture. A lot of my friends have graduated years ago and they all still know how to boogie.

More like 10. As soon someone is in their his or her double digits, they're pretty much exiting childhood and entering adolescence.  Furthermore, there are people out there who have attended middle school as 5th graders (It's been found out that some states or school districts have MS being 5th-8th instead of the usual 6th-8th)

5 struggles only early 2000s teens understand:

1) Another iPod update!
2) Selecting your 8 best friends on Myspace. I don't have that many friends!
3) Deciding whether your ringtone should be something fun (My Humps by BEP), something traditional (Yeah! By Usher), or just stupid (Crazy Frog)
4) Trying to convince your friends that the events in The Day After Tomorrow are plausible
5) You'll always be a DS kid no matter how many lame kids make fun of you for not buying a PSP.


Stop it! I don't want to hear it!

More like 10. As soon someone is in their his or her double digits, they're pretty much exiting childhood and entering adolescence.  Furthermore, there are people out there who have attended middle school as 5th graders (It's been found out that some states or school districts have MS being 5th-8th instead of the usual 6th-8th)


Not really. At 10, you're still pretty young and don't have as much freedom and still view the world from a child-like point of view rather than a teenage one. Yeah, sure, you can say puberty might start around then (but it can also start at 8 or 9) but you're still generally a child. 12 is a much more solid starting date. Middle school isn't really a good way to prove this because certain grade schools go from K to 8 so you can be as old as 14 and be in the same school as you were at 4/5.

To me 1-3 is a toddler. 4-9/10 is a kid. 10/11-12 is a preteen. 13-17 is a teen. 18+ is an adult.

That too, but that doesn't mean 10 year olds can't be part of the pop culture. while they might have a child-like perspective, their childhood is almost over therefore making them transition into adolescence.

Another thing, I want to point out that some people can develop their traits, hobbies, career and mindset at an early age.

Like I said, transition into adolescence can also begin at 8 or 9 when puberty starts. Despite this, they're still not really a focus of pop culture as they're viewed as children by most people. Your average 10 year old's demeanor/attitude/mindset is gonna be closer to a 7 year old than a 13 year old. Same with hobbies/traits/career/mindset. A 10 year old is most likely going to be interested in things like trading cards, toys and other child-like things.

In general, most people going through their teenage years are fickle and those things constantly change until somewhere between 18 to 21-ish.

They are in a way. Shows that take place in middle school could give them a perspective on what and how it be like for them.

As for hobbies, some people develop theirs at an early age. Everyone's pastimes begins somewhere and could even stay with them forever.

It's still not going to be the main focus of pop culture. They have shows about kids in grade school as well.

Yes, some. Like I said above, most young people are fickle due to being young, not fully mentally developed and still learning about themselves. A sizeable and significant amount of people change over the span of time so much that there's a point where they won't even touch anything resembling their teenage interests even more so than people who still like the same things they did as kids/teenagers. Like pretty much everything, there's exceptions, sure, but normally people grow into different things as they age and there are far, far less people who, in adulthood and throughout life, are into the same things as they were as teenagers and far less so at 10.

It's going to depend on the person, but for me it was
0 to 3: Baby
4 to 5.5: Oversized baby
5.5 to 11.5: core childhood
10 to 13: preteen (preteen and childhood are not mutually exclusive to me)
14 to 18: core teenagehood
19+: adulthood

UltraGameDog thinks core childhood is ages 5-8. I'm completely ok with his opinion though, but I disagree with it. I define early childhood/preschool/pre-K as ages 3-5, core/peak childhood as ages 6-10, late childhood/preteen/early adolescence as ages 11-13, peak teenager/core adolescence as ages 14-17, late teenager/early young adult as 18-20, and 21+ as legal aged adult.

I'm sorry, but a 10 year old is still a core kid. I never thought of myself as a preteen/teenager/adolescent or anything when I was 10. A 10 year old kid is a KID. It doesn't matter when middle school starts or not. Biologically a 10 year old is still the main target audience for doing core kid cultural type stuff along with 6-9 year old's. I agree with Jordan that if you were to ask someone if a 10 year old is more related to a 13 year old or 7 year old, I'd easily pick 7 in a heartbeat. Most 10 years old on average still watch cartoons, kid sitcoms, and do kid type activities. I usually consider age 11 as the transitional age from doing core kid stuff to getting into the mainstream/youth culture, and by the time your 12 your awareness of the mainstream culture and the real world around you is in full effect. Not trying to count those out who believe they've been into the mainstream culture since age 8-10, but 8-10 year old's are still peak childhood years. This is similar to the same debate (while a lot disagree) I have with the 5 year old issue. 5 year old's, believe it or not, are still in the main target audience for preschool or educational shows. Age 5 may be the start of core childhood, but it doesn't necessarily mean as SOON as you hit 5 your childhood is at its peak right away when you were still age 4 yesterday. Unless you didn't have a September cutoff, then most 5 year old's on average are transitioning over from preschool/pre-K to Kindergarten and still have very basic stuff they have to review, which isn't the same as an 8 year old kid transitioning from 2nd to 3rd grade already in their peak childhoods with a lot more knowledge than them.


I know not everyone's the same with memories, but I noticed a bit of disparity between older and younger people on the Internet.

Whenever someone born in...let's say 1982, posts nostalgia on a site like Reddit or Facebook, they will almost always say they're "a 90s kid, not an 80s kid", and that they "don't remember the 80s very well at all".

But then, when someone born in 1995 talks about nostalgia, they will ALWAYS say they are an "early 2000s kid", never a mid-late 00s kid, and put the most stock into their childhood BEFORE age 8, rather than after. :P

I'm guessing this is because people believe the kid culture of the 00s experienced a massive decline in quality around ~2004-2008, and younger people want to desperately "squeeze" themselves into the "last good years", resisting any association with the post-2006 era. :P


Yeah, no offense, but 90's babies need to stop being ashamed of what they truly grew up with. You don't ever see other generations doing this, and it's mostly because of the internet and what you can research on here over the last decade.

I agree with you 100%, especially about the preteen thing. I didn't know what a tween was until I was, like, 15, and I thought it was an insult because a lot of 12 year olds try to act more grown up than they aren't.

5 to 8 as childhood would be weird... That would make me a 90s kid actually. Is that why you picked those ages, Crash?  :o (Yeah I'm going to use your old username till I forget about it haha)

I would question myself on why there's an old person who likes modern pop culture. I could understand that they watch modern TV shows and movies, but not if it's targeted towards teens/young adults. Smartphones are an example, since most apps are directed towards these tech-savvy teens who barely give a crap about the past.

Last time I went to a party (okay it's been a while...) there were plenty of people in their early 30s who could still boogie. I'd say its usually around the time you get married and settled down (or you hit that age range) that it stops targeting you. Makes sense, since most songs are about crushes and falling in love and stuff.

I'd say 18+ because once you're legally allowed to do more, a whole other world opens up that wasn't there when you were a teenager.

That's true, but when I turned 18 I was resistant to thinking of myself as an adult and all the responsibilities that came with it, it had a lot in common with 16/17 to me.

I mostly don't consider 5 as core childhood because I was still in kindergarten, and the grade schoolers never played with the kindergarteners in my neighbourhood. I remember when I was 7 and my brother was 5, he used to throw HUGE tantrums because none of my friends wanted to talk to him. Then my mother would get angry at me. Not my fault he's a baby!  >:( Suddenly when you get into Grade 1 then every kid in the neighbourhood is your friend.

But in terms of pop culture, I can see why kindergarten would be core. I started watching YTV/Teletoons then, even if I still watched the preschool Treehouse/TVO as well. I watched those till I was like 8 though... So *shrugs* I refused to grow up LOL

I see early childhood as 3-4. Core as 5-10. Late as 11-12. Once you enter elementary school you're in your core childhood (this can vary depending on what part of the year you were born, but I was 5 when I entered Kindergarten and 5 when I ended it while someone from the early part of a year was 5 in the beginning and 6 at the end).  I didn't notice much of a difference between 5 and 6 year olds. Especially since in kindergarten you'd have 6 year olds hanging out with 5 year olds. As someone who has a 6 and 5 year old sibling I fail to notice the differences. They have similar interests and everyone treats them the same.


Well Marquis, nobody grows up THE SAME as others....

Pretty much. I say early, mid, late decade kid mainly since people grow up at the same time. For 00's kids it doesn't matter what part you grew up in as you're still a 00's kid. But they all didn't grow up in the same part. Someone from 1993-1995 mainly grew up in the early part while someone from 1997-1999 mainly grew up in the late part. They didn't have their entire childhood in a specific part, but they ended up having a majority of it during that time. Once you turn 8 you've pretty much past most of your childhood.

I've seen mid 80's born who mainly speak of the early '90s when they speak of their childhood. They don't mention the mid-late parts unless they're talking about their preteen-teen years.

I see early childhood as 3-4. Core as 5-10. Late as 11-12. Once you enter elementary school you're in your core childhood (this can vary depending on what part of the year you were born, but I was 5 when I entered Kindergarten and 5 when I ended it while someone from the early part of a year was 5 in the beginning and 6 at the end).  I didn't notice much of a difference between 5 and 6 year olds. Especially since in kindergarten you'd have 6 year olds hanging out with 5 year olds. As someone who has a 6 and 5 year old sibling I fail to notice the differences. They have similar interests and everyone treats them the same.
Pretty much. I say early, mid, late decade kid mainly since people grow up at the same time. For 00's kids it doesn't matter what part you grew up in as you're still a 00's kid. But they all didn't grow up in the same part. Someone from 1993-1995 mainly grew up in the early part while someone from 1997-1999 mainly grew up in the late part. There didn't have there entire childhood in a specific part, but they ended up having a majority of it.

This. all of this!!!!!

Well Marquis, nobody grows up THE SAME as others....


Well technically, I would say that the first half of Kindergarten when I was 5 1/2 is when my core childhood officially began, which made age 6 the first full year of my peak childhood. Now earlier when I was 5 still in pre-K that still felt like early childhood to me. Kindergarten was a core/peak childhood year, but pre-K wasn't though for me unfortunately.

But in terms of pop culture, I can see why kindergarten would be core. I started watching YTV/Teletoons then, even if I still watched the preschool Treehouse/TVO as well. I watched those till I was like 8 though... So *shrugs* I refused to grow up LOL


I remember the moment I finished Kindergarten and Summer 2002 hit, and I went back to Nick Jr. or Playhouse Disney and I was like "this stuff is for babies  8-P" when I was 6 years old, and I would always hate it when my younger sister had it on (who's 2 1/2 years younger than me). I felt like that stuff wasn't for me anymore, therefore, from Summer 2002 onto the rest of my elementary school years I stuck with big kid stations only. PBS Kids in the afternoons was the closest to educational left I still watched when I was 6-8 years old, but even then those weren't really "preschool shows", those were educational shows for early grade schoolers.

Yeah, but at 10 I begun to age out of cartoons.....


I started to age out of cartoons at 10 too, because most of the cartoons made from 2006 & onwards I didn't really grow up with, but that doesn't mean I was officially a preteen or adolescent at age 10 though, I was still a core kid in terms of the activities I did and the vacations I went on. All the friends I made throughout 4th grade made age 10 important to my childhood as well. Ben 10 is the last cartoon that premiered that I remember enjoying from start to finish, which ironically started in December 2005 towards the very end of the year. However, a lot of shows that started in the early 2000's or 2004/2005 were still on TV for its last seasons throughout 2006 & early 2007, which is why I was still into some kid channels at 10 and early 11, despite them severely declining by then. By age 11 I started watching anything on TV. Comedies, parodies, mainstream shows, TV-14+ cartoons, etc.

What happens if you find a 60-75 year old who appreciates the pop culture of today? Are people going to laugh at him/her if he/she gets caught listening to some of the 2010's songs or dressing as a 2010's person? It's possible to find a few today, because everyone is different and some people never stop liking the pop culture as they grew older.

It's still not going to be the main focus of pop culture. They have shows about kids in grade school as well.

Yes, some. Like I said above, most young people are fickle due to being young, not fully mentally developed and still learning about themselves. A sizeable and significant amount of people change over the span of time so much that there's a point where they won't even touch anything resembling their teenage interests even more so than people who still like the same things they did as kids/teenagers. Like pretty much everything, there's exceptions, sure, but normally people grow into different things as they age and there are far, far less people who, in adulthood and throughout life, are into the same things as they were as teenagers and far less so at 10
Everyone is still developing those traits no matter what age he or she is. As for the second statement, that solely depends. I agree that not everything is going to stick with folks as they age, but there are definitely certain hobbies they cling to especially if it's their passion.


UltraGameDog thinks core childhood is ages 5-8. I'm completely ok with his opinion though, but I disagree with it. I define early childhood/preschool/pre-K as ages 3-5, core/peak childhood as ages 6-10, late childhood/preteen/early adolescence as ages 11-13, peak teenager/core adolescence as ages 14-17, late teenager/early young adult as 18-20, and 21+ as legal aged adult.
The reason for that is there is a transition between childhood and adolescence Yes, someone 9 and 10 is a kid; however, his/her childhood is almost over (considering he/she is close to the next level of school and the innocence declining) therefore, making the transformation occurring.

As for adolescence, you're correct that it's from 11-18; however, I can see 10 as part of it (being in your double digits can be a huge deal)


5 to 8 as childhood would be weird... That would make me a 90s kid actually. Is that why you picked those ages, Crash?  :o (Yeah I'm going to use your old username till I forget about it haha)
That would be core childhood. The entire duration of it is 3 to 10. As for your question, the reason I picked those ages is because that's the main childhood/elementary years for many people and considering that puberty CAN begin at 9/10 which happened to me when I was that age.

As for the 90s kid thing, I'm a Y2K one (like Infinity stated) as my childhood took place during that entire era. I never felt like a 00s kid (even though I am partly one) because my adolescence occurred throughout most of the time period and that I see the decade from a general viewpoint and not from a child's.

The average 10 year old still has the mindset and development of a child. You develop traits from birth onward. Most people's passions and hobbies at 10 do not stick with them throughout adulthood. You can go through life thinking one thing is your passion only to drop it days/weeks/months later because that's what happens to a lot of people growing up. Just looking back to when I was growing up, the majority of people I met in 9th grade changed drastically when they got to the end of 12th grade.

People can be into popular culture (or not) at any age.  It's not something that mysteriously starts when you become a teenager and ends after your 20s.  It starts and ends whenever you gain or lose interest.  Personally, I quit pop culture in the early 00s.  My 65 year old mother likes a lot of current music.  None of that rap stuff, but some of the more basic pop music.  She watches all of those trendy shows like The Voice and stuff too, so she's very aware of pop culture and appears to enjoy it a lot. 

And, I know you guys don't want to believe it, but I was fully into music and popular culture by the age of 7.  Probably even a little earlier, but I'll be really conservative so you guys don't roll your eyes too hard.  This includes children's stuff (such as Ren & Simpy and toys etc) as well as pop culture that appealed to the general public.  I regularly listened to the radio, watched MTV just as much as Nickelodeon, and ordered tapes/CDs through those BMG and Columbia House mail order clubs that they solicited you through the mail. I listened to all the Top 40 countdown programs like Rick Dees and Casey Kasem.  Pretty much every time we were doing an outside activity such as shooting hoops or street hockey, I always got out the extension cord out and plugged it into the garage outlet so we could put the boombox on the curb while we played.  I have nostalgia for pretty much every single Top 40 song from 1992-1996 because I was listening to music so heavily during that time. 

I mean, talk about nostalgia!  "Caseeey's Toop Foouurrtyyyyy!!!"  Listening to this stuff gives me goosebumps:

I also wore all the clothing trends... the floral dresses, the flannel shirts, the bodysuits that snapped at the crotch, the No Fear t-shirts etc.  I woke up every morning and stood in front of the mirror, teasing my bangs and loading them with hairspray.  I was basically following the trends already and I was still in elementary school, which you guys think is the "clueless" age for some reason. 

Honestly, my personality was already very apparent as a child.  Of course I'm all grow up now (I'm 31) but the underlying personality was already there at a young age.  I don't feel like my childhood self is light years away from who I am now.  I can think back to memories of when I was 9 and its basically the same person.  I don't know if that means I was an extremely mature kid or if it means that I never grew up.  ;D Maybe a little of both.

Hi, I'm Jordan! ;)

It's true you can be into pop culture at any age and your personality can develop early on (yes, I believe you ;D) but, from my experience, the average person pretty much starts and ends high school as almost two completely different people. I like the same things I did at 14-20 but most people I grew up with don't. Some even go as far as disassociating themselves from their youth (I know quite a few who do this). For me, I didn't really figure out myself until I was around 11-12 when I discovered Beavis and Butthead, Green Day's Dookie and Offspring's Smash back in 1993/1994.

It honestly depends. The whole reason I bring up the Iraq War is because of albums like American Idiot, Rock Against Bush and Chuck. If there was no big bashlash against the war, then a lot of bands wouldn't of started wearing all black/acting political and maybe the early 00s would of lingered on a lot longer.

Yes! Levis are great jeans!

Dickies are a clothing brand. They usually make work clothing but around the 80's skaters and cholos started wearing them. It's a Socal thing that got really popular worldwide from 1994-2004. Ultra Game Dog had a good example above but I'll post a few more:

Interesting what RobinofLocksey from Personality Cafe said....
From RobinofLocksey,
''The full range of Gen Y to me would be 1981-2000. However, if I were to split it up, I'd split it in 4, rather than 3.''

''1981-1985: The first group of Gen Y. These guys were in high school or college during the late 90s early 00s when millennium culture was huge. Being the leaders of Y, they still have many influences of Gen X in them, they spent their childhood into their teen years when X culture dominated, and this group was old enough to fight the war in Iraq right from the get-go when it started in 2003. Britney Spears "Hit Me Baby One More Time" in 1998 was the absolute dawn of Generation Y culture, and it was pretty obvious that Gen X's hayday by that point was over.
Celebrities - Britney Spears, Beyonce Knowles, Justin Timberlake, Pitbull, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Mila Kunis, Carrie Underwood, Mark Zuckerberg, Avril Lavigne, Patrick Stump, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars

1986-1990: The second group of Gen Y. These guys were still pretty young during the millennium era of 1997-2003. However, these guys were basically the core teenage group of the 00s, and were in high school and college when emo/scene was popular and when social networking was taking off. This group was probably the hardest hit by the financial crisis being they were 18-22 in 2008.
Celebrities - Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, Drake Bell, Josh Peck, Ellie Goulding, Kesha, Hillary Duff, Zac Efron, Rihanna, Emma Stone, Adele, Jason Derulo, Daniel Radcliffe, PewDiePie, Taylor Swift, Emma Watson, Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Lawrence

1991-1995: The third group of Gen Y. These guys were the last to have entered compulsory school in the 20th century, and the last to have been affected by 9/11, albeit they were 6-10 and a little naive about the world at the time. These guys were in high school or college in the late 00s early 10s, and were the target audience for stuff like electropop, dubstep, etc. of that era. Many of them used social media before they were in high school.
Celebrities - Ed Sheeran, Daniel O'Brien, Nick Jonas, Jenette McCurdy, Sam Smith, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Zayn Malik, Meghan Trainor, Miranda Cosgrove, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Caspar Lee, Ross Lynch

1996-2000: The fourth group of Gen Y. These guys were too young to have remembered or been impacted by 9/11, the oldest of this group were 5 when the event happened and only barely starting kindergarten, so even if they do remember the event, it won't impact their lives at all. They were the last people born in the 20th century, grew up when social media was popular and most of them got a social media account in elementary school. Being the caboose of Y, they have many influences of Gen Z in them. They're becoming adults in the mid-late 10s, as Russia is returning to its superpower status with the invasion of Ukraine, as well as with the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Celebrities - Dove Cameron, Luke Hemmings, Zendaya Coleman, Lorde, Rebecca Black, Kylie Jenner, Bella Thorne, Shawn Mendez, Ariel Winter, Peyton List, Silento, Sabrina Carpenter, Daniel Skye, Baby Ariel''

Eazy E-man mentioned this before, but I consider someone like James Rolfe aka the Angry Video Game Nerd (b. 1980) to be Gen X and not Millennial. He grew up with late X culture like TMNT, NES, and Ghostbusters, and his favourite bands are Nirvana, Slayer, and Megadeth - bands that strike me as being stereotypical "X music".

People born in the early 80s have described themselves as being "between Gen X and millennials", but I'd go one step further and say they're just Gen X, plain and simple.

They have almost NO millennial traits, and I don't understand why some researchers start millennials in 1980-81 when Gen X had already been consistently established as being 1961-1981 for a long time.

'82 is when it gets blurrier (sorry Jordan!). Though people born in that year have many late X traits, when Strauss and Howe named the Millennials in 1987, they chose 82 as the starting birth year because they would graduate in the hyped-up year of 2000 - the new millennium.

Saying 82ers are not Millennials seems to throw a wrench in the whole concept of "millennials", though they don't really act like a stereotypical millennial.

I agree with you that guys like AVGN (and the Nostalgia Critic as well) seem more X than Y when it comes to their worldview and interests.

Oddly, though, I grew up with all of that stuff too, but in my early childhood years. The first movie I ever owned on VHS was TMNT II: Secret of the Ooze, the NES was the first video game console I ever played, and I had a really rad pair of Real Ghostbusters pajamas as a 4-year-old.

Who knows, since I now see kids born in the '00s being considered Millennials, perhaps late '80s babies such as myself will soon be considered X/Y cuspers. ;D

I rarely see them being considered millennials nowadays, those born from 1995-2010 are now mostly considered post-millennials.

I consider those born '95-'97ish to be a bit more Gen Y than Gen Z, but I guess most researchers and commentators would disagree with that.

But if you type in "born 1995 generation" in Google and filter to most recent results (i.e. this week, this month), most recent sources seem to consider those born in 95 to be Z.

Personally, I don't find the lengths of Millennials to be all that unacceptable. I mean, a generation is typically 15-20 years, and if you go by the semi-popular 1980-1994 definition, that's technically a 15 year generation (not 14, contrary to popular belief), just enough time to "fit".

And it wouldn't be the shortest generation "ever", I've seen some definitions peg Gen X as being 1965-1979, the exact same length.

Early 80s babies are millennials, even late 70s people have some millennial in them. If the Internet was well established when you were in high school and you spent most your teen years post-1997, you'd obviously be a millennial. I think your definition of millennial is biased toward those born 1990, when the more stereotypical millennial birth years is closer to 1985 or 1986.

Anyone born in 1979 and earlier is NOT a millennial. I don't care what anybody says. There is no way a 70's baby could be a millennial. In fact, there's no way a generation can start in the same decade where a generation started in the last unless it's at the very beginning of that previous decade. When it comes to generations there has to be at least one FULL decade of babies where everybody born through that stretch is part of the generation, or the peak of the generation. Like 50's babies being the peak of Boomers. 70's babies being the peak of X. 2000's babies being the peak of Z, etc. 1980 at the earliest can be a millennial. 1982 and onwards are definitely millennials though. Some people want to lump late 70's babies in the millennial category because THEY KNOW that they want to cut off millennials in the early 90's and start Z at 1992 or 1993. Can't be fooled with that dumb logic. Generation X will always be 100% 1965-1979 without a question, with early to mid 70's babies being the peak of the generation. Late 70's babies and very early 80's babies are late X with some early Y influence in them. While late 60's babies are early X with some late Boomer influence in them. T

Also, I think late 80's babies are the absolute peak of the milennial/Y generation. Some born in 1987 or 1988 spent most or all of their childhood throughout the core 90's, and spent their core teen years throughout the early to mid 2000's. It doesn't get anymore millennial than that.

1979/1980 are X/Y cusp. If you look at the "political views by birth year" link I gave a few pages back (or it might've been the other thread), 1979/1980 borns tend to be 50/50 Democrat/Republican. 1981 and onwards (till 1994) is strong Democrat territory. Those borns in the 60s/70s (Gen X) tend to be solid conservatives. There are pop cultural reasons as to why 1979/1980 are partial Gen Y too, graduating in 1997/1998 when the digital revolution had already happened, and still being very young (20/21 years old) during the turn of the millennium.

They haven't voted in a presidential election yet. They barely voted in the mid-terms, so I guess that's one millennial trait they have :P

1995-1998 are voting first BTW, anyway, some people would consider us as early Gen Z for the Trump/Hillary election, because we missed out on the Obama elections (which were late Y), while the people whose first election were Bush are early Y.

VERY few millennials, voted in 2000. That was 1979-1982. 1979-1981 are still X. That was kinda X/Yish.

I think your definition of millennial is biased toward those born 1990, when the more stereotypical millennial birth years is closer to 1985 or 1986.

Nope, the late 80s babies are the heart and soul of the millennials even 1990 are as well.  85 and 86ers are still early Y, but are on the cusp of core for the most part.

Probably 1979 and 1980, but 1981 while they're the last on the X/Y cusp, they lean towards Y in my opinion because they graduated high school in 1999 which is usually considered as the first full year of millennial/Y culture by many people. I guess 1979-1982 being the X/Y cusp voting in 2000 is like 1995-1998 being the Y/Z cusp voting in 2016. Which is a 16 year generation gap. Makes perfect sense. Cusp means stuck in between or in the transitional period.

Early 80s babies are millennials, even late 70s people have some millennial in them. If the Internet was well established when you were in high school and you spent most your teen years post-1997, you'd obviously be a millennial. I think your definition of millennial is biased toward those born 1990, when the more stereotypical millennial birth years is closer to 1985 or 1986.
I agree with you. I'm not trying to irritate Jordan or anyone his age range, but they are totally Millennials. Other than the technology aspect, they really didn't make an impact on voting in the 2000 presidential election despite being eligible because many of us were not even the voting age at that time. In addition, their adulthood was pretty much post-9/11 and that their college experience was in the 2000's which was a Millennial dominated decade.

This. We didn't clearly start voting until 2008 (even in 2004, only the oldest millennials voted and they still didn't make a difference due to the rest not being voting age.)

Not exactly. Zelek's incorrect considering he forgot some other factors such as the older Millennials are in their 30s; were in high school during early Millennial era (the X vibe had pretty much disappeared by then in the late 90s); you guys barely voted or could not even in 2000; and your college experiences were after that year as well.

Like Eric stated, despite you and some of your friends being eligible vote in 2000, you all barely made an impact on the election as most of this generation were not even voting age at that time. He even forgot that you guys never voted for Bill Clinton due to not being the age; You guys were kids during the early Millennial kid culture; heck, you and everyone your age range even have some of the Echo Boomer characteristics (and no, it's not laziness, entitlement or wussing out).

Anyone born in 1979 and earlier is NOT a millennial. I don't care what anybody says. There is no way a 70's baby could be a millennial. In fact, there's no way a generation can start in the same decade where a generation started in the last unless it's at the very beginning of that previous decade. When it comes to generations there has to be at least one FULL decade of babies where everybody born through that stretch is part of the generation, or the peak of the generation. Like 50's babies being the peak of Boomers. 70's babies being the peak of X. 2000's babies being the peak of Z, etc. 1980 at the earliest can be a millennial. 1982 and onwards are definitely millennials though. Some people want to lump late 70's babies in the millennial category because THEY KNOW that they want to cut off millennials in the early 90's and start Z at 1992 or 1993. Can't be fooled with that dumb logic. Generation X will always be 100% 1965-1979 without a question, with early to mid 70's babies being the peak of the generation. Late 70's babies and very early 80's babies are late X with some early Y influence in them. While late 60's babies are early X with some late Boomer influence in them. T


In a political sense, 1965 and 1966 could in my opinion still be seen as cusp considering they could vote in 1984's election along with the last of the Boomers (born in 63 and 64). I wouldn't really put them as 100% X. 1967 is, in my opinion, the first "definitely Gen X" birth year.

That's a decent point about voting, however, the "early Millennial kid culture" is pretty subjective.

I'm just joking, anyway. I start the generation at 1981/1982. :P

Damn you got me!  ;D. I should have known you were being sarcastic.

As for the quotes, I mean that the kid culture was from late 80s to mid 90s. In fact, the kid atmosphere of the Millennials spanned from about 1988/89 to 2004/05 with the first half being from late 80s to 1995/96 and the second half being from 1996 to 2004.

True, but it's still a subjective thing as to where "millennial culture" starts and ends. The stuff about adulthood and those sort of factors are the most important to me when figuring out what generation is what.

Debatable... I would have went with 1990/91 as the starting point, since I consider the late 80s kid culture to be x/y.
and late 1996- early 1999 could be seen as core/late.

Well the Millennial's Childhood era spanned from 1989 to 2003/04 while the adulthood/adolescence/pop culture covered from 1999/00 to right now (although it's almost over).

Yes, it could be since the oldest Millennials are already in elementary at that time.

And do you still see the generation in 3 groups? I think it's better with just two, but that's just me.

You're definitely one especially considering it's in the middle of the generation. There's no way you can't be a millennial. Besides, you and your friends were eligible to vote in the 2008 election and were adolescents in the 2000s.

This year's elections willl be the last one that Gen Z people are not allowed to vote. This is because the first Gen Zers doesn't turn 18 until 2018, so this means that the 2020 election will have the first Gen Z voters.

Not sure about that. I've been reading articles lately and some of them have stated that this is Gen Z's first election to vote in (although we know the generation should start in 2001 instead of 1995)

Oh, I need to mention that when I was a HS sophomore in 2008, I was looking at a book in class (can't remember) and there was the name of this generation called Echo Boomers (another alternative to Gen Y) and it said it ended in 1994.

Also, I think late 80's babies are the absolute peak of the milennial/Y generation. Some born in 1987 or 1988 spent most or all of their childhood throughout the core 90's, and spent their core teen years throughout the early to mid 2000's. It doesn't get anymore millennial than that.


I agree with that. I've always felt that those of us born in 1987 and 1988 are the heart and soul of Gen Y, with 1988 being the absolute peak. '88ers were 3-12 years old from 1991-2000, and 13-18 years old from 2001-2006. Like you said, that's about as "Millennial" as someone can get.

I'm not bragging by the way. Being considered a Peak Millennial these days is certainly not something to be proud of. ;D

There's some speculation that you later Yers might lean slightly more Republican than us Peak Yers because you guys came of age during the Obama years, and are more disillusioned with his policies. We'll find out during the election this fall, but I'm not quite sure I buy this theory.

That has to do with the negative stereotypes associated with this generation that are clearly not true. I don't understand what's wrong with being a Millennial. Yeah, there are some out there who are pessimistic and entitled, but that's not all of them. The media seems to forgotten there are plenty of us who are positive, diligent, and not obnoxious. In addition, we're not some sexless, jobless and lazy freaks either. Many of us actually have jobs/careers, homes/apartments, are married and/or even have children.

I'm curious: has there ever been ANYONE born in the early 60s who calls themselves a Boomer? Like, do you have parents, relatives, friends, etc. who consider themselves that? Nearly everyone I know from that time says they're Gen X, despite the media having established that Boomers = 1946-1964.

The only early-60s baby who identifies as a Boomer that I know of is Jon Stewart (b. 1962).

I agree with you that guys like AVGN (and the Nostalgia Critic as well) seem more X than Y when it comes to their worldview and interests.

Oddly, though, I grew up with all of that stuff too, but in my early childhood years. The first movie I ever owned on VHS was TMNT II: Secret of the Ooze, the NES was the first video game console I ever played, and I had a really rad pair of Real Ghostbusters pajamas as a 4-year-old.

I'm curious: how did people react when 80s media was consumed in the 90s? I know there was an 80s backlash at the time, but was it a backlash against EVERYTHING 80s?

Like, let's say someone was watching Back to the Future, Pretty in Pink, or The Empire Strikes Back on tv in 1995. What would people say? "Eww, why are you watching lame 80s movies?" or "Those movies are clearly 80s, but they're still great movies"? ;D

Or let's say they reran a famous 80s commercial or TV shows in 1995 for the 10th anniversary. Would there have been some late Gen Xers saying "Man, that's nostalgic", or would the consensus have been "That's the recent past, not nostalgic"?

My mom who's not in that range told me that she was considered a boomer and not X (although it must have been a long time ago.)
